Thanks to a man named Ted Nelson a five-year-old Bichon Frise from Portland named Mordy, is alive and well. The dog fell from a 14th floor balcony and was headed for disaster but luckily instead of hitting the pavement, the pooch landed on Nelson’s arms. Now that’s what I call being in the right place at the right time!
“I just looked out my window at my apartment at the apartment across the street. There was a dog that had ended up climbing through the railing on its balcony and it was perched on this little ledge,” said Nelson to KGW News.
The hero took the slightly bruised pup to the vet for a full checkup and the pet is expected to recover fully. The dog was later reunited with his owners who weren’t home at the time of the accident.
