When an 87-Year-old Fell Down in Winter Storm, She was Rescued by a Dog (Now Being Called Lassie)

This black Labrador mix is being hailed a hero after she came to the rescue of an 87-year-old woman in distress earlier this week.

Tim Curfman was taking out the garbage from his home in Minnesota during the record-breaking winter storm last week when his 4-year-old pup Midnight started acting strangely.

“She had her ears perked up looking at me,” Curfman told CBS Minnesota. “She doesn’t normally do that. Sometimes you get that feeling something’s up.”

Curfman decided to follow Midnight out into the snow – and she immediately dashed over to the other side of their house. There, he found his elderly neighbor Noreen lying in the snow.

She had fallen to the ground while trying to refill her bird feeder, and there was nothing to grab that could help her get back up again. She had been lying in the snow for at least half an hour when Curfman found her.

He then brought Noreen into his house so he and his wife could get the chilled senior into warm, dry clothes.

She has apparently made a full recovery without sustaining any frostbite – and it is all thanks to Midnight; or as she is now being affectionately nicknamed, Lassie.
