A man in his 70s was walking his dogs when he fell ill and was saved by them. The dogs shared the tasks: one went to get help from a hiker while the other looked after their master.
A 71-year-old man was rescued in time after losing consciousness while walking his dogs. It was his four-legged friends who protected him and found him help.
The incident had taken place late the previous morning in Braithwaite in the mountainous Lake District of North West England. The black-coated Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever were accompanying their owner when he became unwell. He lost consciousness and collapsed.
