Blind man saved by guide dog

'The dog saved my life,' said Williams from his St. Luke’s Hospital bed, 'He tried to hold me up.' Cecil Williams, 61, was making his way to the dentist at 9.30 am with his 10-year-old black Labrador Orlando when he suddenly felt faint and began to wobble perilously close to the edge of the platform. His longtime buddy desperately tried to hold him back from falling by pulling at his leash. Witnesses said the dog was barking frantically and tried to stop Williams from falling, but they both fell to the tracks when Williams fainted. Orlando woke Williams by licking his face as an approaching A train was arriving. The pair cowered in the gap in the middle of the tracks and Williams only suffered a gash to his head as the train rolled over them. Williams is also sadly going to lose Orlando when the dog retires next year. His health insurance does not cover a non-working dog.
