Here’s an extremely sad story which elicits two, very different but equally valid responses: respect for a woman who so loved her dog that she would heroically risk her life trying to save him, and the understanding that it’s best to leave such rescues to the professionals.
When Erika Owen’s pup Kairos ran out onto the thin ice of Wichita’s Chisholm Park Lake, the woman followed. They both fell through, and attempts to rescue them were too late. By all accounts, Ms. Owen was a selfless, kind person, so it doesn’t surprise folks who knew her that she would try to help.
We post many videos of heroic rescues by firefighters and other professional. Please, if you find yourself in this position, call for help.
