Engineer Saves Dog Tied to Railroad Tracks

A Modern Day Miracle 

Tied to a railroad with a train barreling down the tracks, sounds like the start of an old western movie. But that sight was all to real for a 10-month-old poodle terrier mix nicknamed Banjo. Lucky for Banjo, Agent Sal Pina was the engineer aboard the Union Pacific train that was on the track that day. He spotted the dog on the tracks and immediately hit the emergency brakes. He brought the train to a complete stop and got out to untied Banjo.

The owner was found and detained, but officials stated the man will not be charged with a crime because he may have dementia. Luckily, hundreds of calls have poured in since Banjo made it several TV appearances and they expect he will be adopted by Monday.
