Figo the service dog will officially be the first animal entered into our heros archive. Figo threw himself in the path of a school bus when it struck both the dog and owner. Figo may of saved his owners life, as even with his courageous act, she still suffered a fractured right elbow, three broken ribs, a fractured ankle and a cut to her head in the accident. Figo’s leg was severely injured, and apparently cut down to the leg. Both are expected to recover.
Figo stayed with his owner as the first responders arrived to the scene. Even while injured, Figo would not leave her side. Eventually they had to be separated when Audrey Stone (owner) had to be taken to the hospital while Figo had to be taken to the veterinaries to get fixed up.
The school bus driver has been charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian.
