WATCH: Man Climbs Up to 13th Floor Balcony to Rescue Dog

Posted on

A man in Bogota, Colombia, risked his life to save a dog who was hanging by a collar from a 13th floor balcony.

According to TheDodo.com, Diego Andres Davila Jimenez saw the dog dangling there and knew he had to act fast.

“People on the ground were screaming. They had a mattress out just in case,” Jimenez told The Dodo.com, who reported the story. “The truth is, I did not think about the dire consequences.  I did not look down.”

When Jimenez made it to the dog, he pulled it over to safety. Neither man, nor dog was hurt in the ordeal.

“When I had Luna in my hands and looked down, a thousand thoughts flew through my mind,” he said.  “My girlfriend was a little upset, yelling at me ‘You stay there! Do not climb back down!’”

Jimenez personally delivered the dog to its owner, who was not home at the time of the incident.

“She was in tears,” he said. “She is very grateful, because she just adores that dog.”
