Winter weather is always risky. The snow, the ice, the blowing wind. So many things can go wrong, and it's too unpredictable to prepare for. When a Michigan man went to get another log for his fire on New Year's Eve, he never knew it would be a matter of life and death.
Bob, whose last name was not disclosed, went out to his yard to get another log about an hour before midnight. He was in his pajamas and slippers, and ended up slipping on the ice.
Upon impact, Bob broke his neck. He was unable to move so he began screaming for help. The temperature dropped to 24 degrees, and Bob was stuck lying in the snow.
But it was his dog who ended up saving his life.
