Earlier this week, a fire broke out in the apartment building where Marley lives with his mom, trapping the little dog inside. Billy Fernando, a portrait photographer, happened to be driving by when he spotted firefighters rushing into the burning structure, so he decided to pull over to watch them work.
That's when he witnessed a life being saved.
"As I was standing outside, I saw the firefighter, Mr. Klein, running toward the curbside grass area carrying something," Fernando told The Dodo. "I didn't know what it was at first, but then I realized that it was a pet who had been trapped in the fire. The dog was unconscious, limp and not moving at all."
Klein stayed by the dog's side and began to work.
