Hotel Manager Saves Dog From Elevator

A South Carolina hotel manager sprang into action last week when he happened to walk out of a storage area and saw a guest getting on the elevator holding a leash — but his little dog was left in the lobby when the elevator doors closed. “I just grabbed it, and struggled with it, then I guess adrenaline set in or something, and I snapped the leash right above my hand,” said the manager, Ben Duke. The heroic incident was caught on tape by a surveillance camera at the Roadway Inn. Boo Boo’s owner is a regular guest at the hotel and raced back downstairs in tears when he realized what had happened. “He was crying and was so grateful,” Duke said. “He just came up and hugged me.It was pretty crazy.” — Read it at South Carolina’s WYFF
