Two New York Cops Save Choking Puppy They Now Call Lucky
Two New York cops helped saved a choking puppy that is now being called Lucky.
The owner of the puppy walked into the Eden Police station asking for help with his puppy. The dog was having trouble breathing because there was something stuck in his throat.
Officers Eric Milks and Brian Burgstahler performed the Heimlich maneuver on the puppy and were able to free the object, according to Eden Police. They rushed the pooch to the vet to get checked out and he is now doing well.
The puppy didn't have a name, so Officers Milks and Brugstahler started calling him Lucky. It's unclear whether or not the owner kept the new name, but it only seem appropriate. Either Lucky or named after one of the officers who saved his life.
