Disaster struck when the man jumped a curb on his bike. Luckily, five-year old Yogi was nearby.

When the man woke up, he couldn’t move and was bleeding from the nose and mouth.

Yogi was at his side. For the next 45 minutes, Horton pleaded with the dog, who wanted to stay by his side, to go home and get help.
