When a stray dog is discovered on a train track, it frequently causes delays for passengers on board since the train must stop so that the dog may be removed.
Another frequent result is a sad one: the train keeps moving while the passengers only experience a bump in the tracks. The second option, killing the dog on the rails, was out of the question for a train conductor in Santiago, Chile.
The driver could have asked for help from authorized staff to remove and rescue the dog, but instead, he stopped the train, got down on the tracks, and saved the dog himself.
The brave man can be seen approaching the frightened dog in the video. The man calls the dog over, but when it doesn’t respond, he slowly leans out to pet it while hoping not to get bit. Thankfully, the dog was happy to be saved, and the train driver was able to lift the dog to safety by grabbing him by the neck. The dog was saved by another train employee who took it in.
I’m sorry about the inconvenience, but I couldn’t just run over the dog,” the driver said as soon as he climbed back aboard the train.
Everyone on board clapped for the man. He really is a hero!
