Dog saves Colo. skier's life
A Colorado man is thanking his pet for saving his life.
Leonard Somers says he was on a ski run when his ski hit a rock and sent him tumbling down a ravine.
Somers was paralyzed below the waist and unable get up. He says his dog kept him company for 45 minutes and then he sent her to get nearby skiers.
"I looked at her, and I go 'go get 'em and she actually ran off. And there was, they had a dog with them. And she somehow or another, brought the dog back to me."
"I guess without Juneau here, I would probably not be alive today."
Somers says it took rescuers five hours to get him off the mountain.
He is now recovering in the hospital and hopes to walk again.
