After Woman Suffers Stroke, Doorbell Cam Captures 2 Labs Running Through Neighborhood For Help

She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

Maureen Hatcher was inside her Florida home when she suffered a stroke and collapsed onto the floor.

Unable to move a muscle, Maureen turned to the only other family members with her at the time: her two black Labradors, Sadie and Bella.

“Mommy needs help,” Maureen says she told the dogs. “I’m in trouble here; I can’t move.”

Every second counts when a stroke occurs. Since it can cause permanent disability and brain damage, it’s of utmost importance that 911 is called and emergency personnel are dispatched as soon as possible. It’s as if Sadie and Bella knew this, because all Maureen had to do was ask for their help — and the dogs were gone in a flash.

In this amazing footage captured by Maureen’s Ring doorbell security camera, Sadie and Bella are seen bursting through their front door and running into their neighborhood for help. Once outside, they barked and yelped, catching the attention of their neighbor, Alexandra. She noticed the dogs frantically trying to lead her somewhere, and thankfully she followed them back to Maureen.

Alexandra found Maureen unconscious and dialed 911.

If it weren’t for this pair of loyal dogs and their hero instincts, life could look a whole lot different for Maureen today.
