A man rescues a dog hanging near a highway overpass using an electrical cord

David Fredman was on his way to work in Independence, MO, when he noticed a dog in distress near the I-70 overpass.

“I saw what looked like a dog hanging over the side of a power box. The cord was definitely strangling him,” Fredman told Fox4 KC. “His feet were barely touching the ground, and he was struggling to move his head.”

Acting quickly, Fredman called 911 and then used a knife to cut the dog free. Once freed, the dog struggled to breathe and could not walk. Fredman calmed the dog and took him to KC Pet Project.

At the shelter, they discovered the dog, named Max, was microchipped. Max’s owner, Dee Vaughn, had been searching for him and was relieved to receive a call just two hours after reporting Max missing. However, Vaughn was deeply upset upon learning what had happened to his 16-year-old dog.

It’s unclear how Max got into the predicament. Was it an accident or did someone purposely try and hang Max? Vaughn said there’s no way his senior dog could have walked the mile to where he was found.

But he told the news station that surveillance cameras may reveal what befell his dog. Certainly the electrical cord around Max’s neck points to suspicious activity. Vaughn said he has called police and was told to contact animal control, which he plans to do.But he’s just grateful that Max is home safe thanks to Fredman. He had a chance to thank Fredman in person and told him, “Thank you, David, so much. You stopped what you were doing to turn around and save my dog’s life.”
