CHIMBOTE, Peru (Reuters) — They really are man’s best friend.
After a resident of the central Peruvian coastal city of Chimbote got drunk and hit his head, he needed an ambulance to take him to the area hospital.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the trauma room; his two dogs decided to accompany and help their owner.
The man, who according to security footage, appeared to be slipping in and out of consciousness, was joined on his ride to the Caleta hospital by his cream and brown-coloured dog. As the video shows, the canines are clearly concerned for their owner, jumping to keep up with his stretcher and nuzzling up against him both in the ambulance and in the hospital.
The man was last seeng waiting for his appointment at the hospital, where he was joined by his pets.
