Dog saved from heavy oncoming traffic at Upper Thomson Road by kind passer-by

That was close.

A dog was spotted running on Upper Thomson Road on May 8.

Traffic conditions were heavy at that time.

The surrounding vehicles appeared aware of the dog’s presence by keeping a distance from it and braking hard to avoid running it over, but no one came to the animal’s rescue.

The dog, which could be a puppy, nervously trotted on the centre lane of the road, instead of scurrying towards the side for safety.

Should oncoming cars have sped forward without looking, it would have been disastrous.

Passer-by to the rescue

Before anything tragic could have happened, however, one passer-by quickly came out of nowhere to the dog’s rescue.

The dog instinctively stopped running forward when it saw the man.

The passer-by then picked up the dog from the street without any fuss and carried it to safety.

Whoever this man is, we’re pretty sure his newfound furry friend is thankful. And it really ought to learn a lesson.

In the future, there won’t always be a kind stranger to get it out of a bind.
