A loyal canine sacrificed his own life to save his suicidal owner from an oncoming train. The 48 yr. old Kazakhstani man reportedly consumed an entire bottle of vodka and laid down on the railroad tracks to commit suicide when the train ran over him.

Witnesses in Karaganda reported that the dog of unknown breed saw his unconscious owner in danger and began to pull him from the tracks. The train conductors saw the dog and man on the tracks and desperately attempted to halt the speeding train in time. The dog managed to get the unnamed man off of the tracks with broken ribs and a shoulder injury.

The brave dog couldn’t get off the tracks in time and the locomotive hit the lower half of his body. He died at the scene.
