Riley Gedge-Duffy, five, suffered burns to his arms, back and head when the machine automatically started with the boy, who has Down's syndrome, stuck inside.

Bimbo affetto dalla Sindrome di Down viene salvato dal suo cane

Un bambino di 5 anni con la sindrome di Down, Riley Gedge-Duffy, è vivo per miracolo grazie al suo fedele amico a 4 zampe Teddy. Il piccolo era rimasto intrappolato nell’asciugatrice mentre la mamma stava passando l’aspirapolvere.

La donna non si è resa conto di quello che stava succedendo, ma Teddy ha fatto scattare l’allarme. Quando, infatti, l’ha visto correre su e giù abbaiando, ha capito che qualcosa non andava. L’asciugatrice, infatti, era partita con Riley all’interno.

Il bambino fortunatamente ha riportato solo delle piccole ustioni su braccia, schiena e testa, ma secondo l’autista dell’ambulanza, qualche altro minuto e sarebbe morto soffocato. Menomale che c’era Teddy!
