In the state of Oregon, USA, a dog saved the owner who was injured in a car accident. The dog traveled almost 6.5 kilometers to call for help.

This was reported by The Guardian with reference to the statement of the sheriff of Baker County, Oregon.

One day in early June, Brandon Garrett and his four dogs left the camp his family had set up in the Wallowa Mountains. The man lost control on a sharp turn and flew off the embankment.

One of his pets ran almost 6.5 kilometers back to the camp. Seeing the dog, Brandon's family began to worry. They started a search and the next morning found the man's car in the stream.

Brandon's relatives could not get to the car on their own because it fell into a steep ravine covered with bushes. Emergency crews responded to their call and used chainsaws to clear a path for search and rescue operations.

Once the team was able to reach him, they loaded and secured the man onto a stretcher. He was connected to a rope system and lifted from the ravine, the county sheriff's office said.

Alive but injured man was found almost 90 meters from the car along with three other dogs. Brandon received first aid at the scene and was airlifted to a medical facility.
