Man Rescues Dog on Houston Freeway

When Rickey Young heard a radio report about an injured dog that was stranded on a Houston freeway, he immediately rushed to the scene.

Transit camera video shows the skittish yellow Labrador backing away when Young first approached.

The Good Samaritan then had an idea: he ran back to his truck, grabbed a sandwich and used it to coax the dog to safety.
