A Deaf Boy Faced Certain Death When His Home Caught On Fire – Until This Pit Bull Did Something Incredible.

Advertisement

A 13-year-old boy is alive today thanks to his hero best friend, who woke him up in the middle of the night when the two were home alone. Ace the Pit Bull’s quick thinking saved the young boy who is deaf and could have perished in the flames, as the two were home alone.

Indianapolis, IN Fire Department Captain, Rita Reith, told Mail Online that 13-year-old Nick Lamb was sleeping without his hearing aids when the fire broke out. To wake up the sleeping child, Ace licked Nick’s face until he jumped up to find his home filling up with smoke. The boy then quickly covered his nose and mouth with his t-shirt and ran outside.

Miraculously, both Nick and Ace were not harmed in the fire. The photos below from the Indianapolis Fire Department show the Pit Bull resting outside of the home of Nick’s parents, Lindsay and James Bernard, who believe the boy was old enough to stay home alone for a few hours.

To thank this brave hero, check out his video and photos and then SHARE this post to remind others how amazingly selfless animals can be!

"I couldn't hear anything because I had my cochlear implants off. ... My dog Ace smelled it," Lamb said. "I just wanted to get out."
