The dog, named Tina, lives with her owner in Goiânia, Brazil. She'd been left alone for just a few minutes while he stepped out to go to the store. But in that short time, she found herself in a world of trouble.
Neighbors who were having a cookout down on the ground floor noticed that Tina was hanging off the balcony overhead. The dog's fall appeared to be imminent, so without hesitating, the Good Samaritans hurriedly fetched a sheet and held it taut beneath her. They did so without a moment to spare.
This heart-stopping video captured the moment Tina then slipped — and was caught before she hit the ground.
