Lainey The Hero Dog To The Rescue

A Glace Bay dog is being called a hero for helping to save a man…and it wasn’t even his dog.
61 year old Donnie Donovan suffered a heart attack while mowing his lawn early last month. His neighbour’s dog, a golden retriever named Lainey, started barking strangely alerting his owners who were down in the basement that something was wrong outside. Kaitlyn Eagles and her boyfriend Gerald Sudworth, both nurses at the Glace Bay Hospital, rushed upstairs and found Donovan and went to work on him and finally resuscitated him. Someone else called 9-1-1 and an ambulance soon arrived.
