Mel the Shih Tzu was playing on the 9th floor balcony of her home in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, when she climbed onto the railing and couldn’t get down. A fall to the ground would surely be the death of her. But thankfully, a passerby with a keen sense happened to be there at the perfect time.
The dog slipped and began the 100ft fall to the ground. Joao Augusto readied and positioned himself as well as he could and was able to break her fall saving the dog’s life. Mel looks back at him for a second to say thanks before walking away unharmed. What a close call!
