AMAZING: Brave dog jumps in front of bus to save blind woman owner in US

Figo, a golden retriever, is being praised by the people for its heroic act for saving its visually impaired woman owner from being hit by a fast moving school bus. Fracturing its leg in the process it underwent a surgery and is recovering in New York’s Putnam County.

Audrey Stone, the dog’s owner, is also hospitalised with a broken ankle, elbow and three cracked ribs, The Journal News reported on Wednesday.

When Figo the service dog saw an oncoming mini school bus heading for Audrey Stone, the blind woman he was trained to guide, the golden retriever’s protective instincts kicked in: He threw himself at the closest part of the vehicle he could.

The bus driver, who had two kindergarten students on board, did not see the pair crossing the road, police said. No one on the bus was injured. The driver was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
