A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy was about to be dragged to his death when his quick-acting canine came to his rescue, authorities said.
Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier was attacked by three men who beat him and sliced him with a box cutter after Frazier stepped out of his car to investigate a suspicious vehicle on the evening of May 18 in Pearlington.
“They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods,” Chief Deputy Don Bass said, according to the Clarion-Ledger. “The three of them were dragging him toward the wooded area, and he was able to break one hand free to activate the button that opens the door and it released Lucas.”
Lucas, a black Belgian Malinois, sprung into action. The dog attacked the three men, biting two of them before they fled in their Lincoln Town Car, authorities said.
