You’re never too young, neither too old to be a hero, and this 65-year-old lady definitely proves it – all after the quick-thinking lady, saved a dog from certain fate. The woman bravely embraced frozen waters to rescue the struggling animal. The scene was caught on video and it’s nothing short of incredible!
It was a Sunday afternoon when Galina Voskovykh and one of her friends were walking in their hometown Rossosh – Voronezh Oblast region in western Russia. But what they initially thought to be a quiet walking in the park, turned into a dramatic rescue with Galina in the center of attention.
All of a sudden, the two women heard a dog crying, and they soon realized the poor thing – a Husky – was stranded in the icy river next to them. It is when the 65-year-old woman striped her clothes and stepped up to save the helpless dog. Without a second thought, Galina put her life on the line and braved the icy water to take the dog to safety on shore. Her friend caught the entire moment on her cellphone.
“On Sunday, I was walking with my friends by the river and heard the plaintive howl of a dog,” the woman told local news outlet Gazeta.Ru. ” There was a husky stuck in the water close to the shore and could not get through the ice to land. Without thinking twice, I undressed and jumped into the water to help him.”
It is unsure how the dog ended up in the river, but he might tried to cross it over and eventually got stuck. When the heroic woman has taken him out of the river, he look injured at on of his legs.
“There was ice, and because of this, the dog could not get ashore, so I broke the ice with my body,” Galina said. “No I don’t consider myself a hero. I think anyone would do the same.”
