Dog rescued by woman in pyjamas
A pyjama-wearing hero jumped out of bed to drive a woman and her dog, who had been hit by a car, to the vets.
Lexi Sarkar, 30 from Kiln Road, said she heard a scream and ran outside to see a woman in tears by her dog Nanuq who was covered in blood. She then jumped in her car, without getting dressed, and drove the two-year-old husky and owner Yvonne Jack to not one but two vets to get him treatment.
MMs Sarkar, said: “I heard wild screaming and at first thought it was someone who was drunk but when I went outside my brain just jumped into gear. I love dogs and to see one in such a terrible state really shocked me. I wasn’t trying to be a hero I just wanted to help.”
Nanuq was hit by the car on Saturday, October 13 after running into the road having seen a fox.
Mrs Jack, 36, from The Rundels, was on her morning run with Nanuq and said she thought he had died after the car crashed into her pet.
“He was hit in the head and was covered in blood because he bit his tongue. Lexi saved us both, she was amazing. She shot out of her house and really is our hero. It’s not everyday someone will drive you around town in their pyjamas to help you out but I am so grateful.”
“Nanuq is much better now after getting a big bump on the head and he will be absolutely fine.”
