According to dogfull.com, a fortunate man named David Fredman happened to be at the perfect spot and time to rescue a dog that was clinging onto an electrical wire close to a highway overpass. As he was on his way to work in Independence, MO, he witnessed this helpless creature near the I-70 overpass.
According to a statement made by Fredman to Fox4 KC, he witnessed a scene where a dog appeared to be hung by a cord from a power box. The animal was struggling to breathe as the cord was wrapped around his neck, and he could barely move his head. Despite his feet being on the ground, they were barely touching, and he seemed to be in a dire situation.
Fredman immediately called 911 upon noticing a dog in distress. He proceeded to use a knife to cut the dog loose, which had been found struggling to breathe. Despite not being able to walk, he managed to calm the distressed creature and brought it to KC Pet Project. Upon arrival, they discovered that the dog, Max, had a microchip with an owner named Dee Vaughn who had reported him missing only two hours prior. Although relieved to hear that Max had been found, Vaughn was understandably upset when informed of the situation surrounding his beloved 16-year-old pet.
Max is in a difficult situation and it’s not clear how he ended up there. It’s uncertain whether someone intentionally hung him or if it was an accident. Vaughn, Max’s owner, believes that his elderly dog couldn’t have walked the mile to where he was found. However, he mentioned that surveillance cameras may provide some information about what happened to his pet. The electrical cord around Max’s neck indicates that something suspicious might have occurred. Vaughn informed the police about the incident and was advised to contact animal control, which he plans to do. Despite the ordeal, Vaughn is relieved that Max is back home safely, thanks to Fredman. He expressed his gratitude to Fredman in person, saying, “David, thank you so much for stopping and saving my dog’s life.”
