Woman Hailed as Hero For Using Drone to Locate Over 200 Lost Pups For Free

in Uncategorized 96 views

A dog lover has been hailed a ‘real-life superhero’ for using her drone to reunite families with their lost pups—most recently, just in time before a ‘deadly’ storm hit.

September 9th was a normal Friday for Erica Hart, as she abandoned her shopping trip to rush home and launch a drone search for a schnauzer before a rumbling thunderstorm made things worse.

Jamie Hollinshead phoned her from Clayton, Yorkshire, to say his rescue dog Hilda had bolted from their garden and they’d already searched for two hours.

The 33-year-old rushed to the last-known location and within 20 minutes spied the escaped pooch running down a residential road.

When the two-year-old dog darted into a nearby field and kept moving, Erica was able to direct Jamie and his wife to the best spot for intercepting her.

The couple from Clayton, who adopted the rescue dog this past April, has hailed Erica a ‘real-life superhero’ and believes Hilda could have been killed had she not been found before the thunderstorm hit minutes later.

“What she did is brilliant. She’s a hero, a real superhero.

“She saved her life. She could have been run over or the storms could have panicked her—you just think the worst straight away.”

“Erica was in constant communication with us. She knew what she was doing and where to look,” said Leah, who had no idea how the dog escaped their fenced yard, but thought it must have been spooked by the thunder.

“As it was getting later, we thought we’d never see her again. It brought a tear to my eye when we got her back.”

A hero cat saved his owner’s life by pounding his paws on her chest to wake her up after she suffered a heart attack.

Sam Felstead was asleep when she was woken by her seven-year-old cat Billy at 4.30am.

She realized she was unable to move her body and had a shooting pain down her right side so called out to her mom Karen for help.

Karen then rushed the 42-year-old to hospital where doctors told her she had suffered a heart attack in her sleep—and she believes Billy’s swift actions saved her life.

“I was a bit shocked, I went to bed and I felt fine. I’d even been out with the dogs—and I didn’t feel ill or have any pains whatsoever.

“Suddenly I woke up and Billy was on my chest and was meowing loudly in my ear hole.

“He was really meowing and he wouldn’t leave me. He doesn’t do that normally. He’s never woken me up before.
