Feel-Good Story of the Week: Dog Saves Owner's Life

A pit bull named Lilly is now a canine hero. Last weekend, an engineer of a freight train saw Lilly, 8, pulling her owner, Christine Spain, from the train tracks in Shirley. Spain fell onto the tracks and was unconscious as the train approached. The engineer tried to stop, but couldn’t avoid hitting Lilly, who suffered a fractured foot and pelvis as well as other internal injuries. Lilly is undergoing treatment at MSCPA-Angell.  [WCVB]
