“Four-Legged Savior: Brave Dog Saves Blind Man from Subway Danger”

On Tuesday, Cecil Williams was seen cuddling and being affectionate towards Orlando, his guide dog, as they both lay on a hospital bed. This happened after he had fallen onto the subway tracks from the platform by accident.

A courageous guide dog from New York recently saved his blind owner’s life by jumping onto subway tracks after the owner lost consciousness and fell off the platform. The brave dog is now retired and in search of a loving home. If possible, the owner would like to have another dog for work and the retired dog as a pet. In the event that this isn’t possible, the family who raised him as a puppy is delighted to take him back. According to Michelle Brier, a spokeswoman for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the family is overjoyed to have him return home and are proud of the impact he has made.

Williams has shared that he is unable to continue caring for his non-working dog, Orlando, due to financial constraints. His search for a new home for Orlando is ongoing. While Guiding Eyes provides free working dogs, the organization is unable to cover expenses for retired dogs. After an Associated Press interview and photos of Williams with Orlando in his hospital room were released, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center received multiple offers of financial aid and other forms of assistance. These inquiries have been forwarded to Guiding Eyes for handling. Williams has not yet made a decision about keeping both dogs and will require help with the expenses if he chooses to do so. Brier has stated that Williams is currently experiencing a challenging time and the situation is emotionally charged for him.

In December 2013, Cecil Williams, who is currently 61 years old, fell from the platform onto the subway tracks at 145th Street in New York. Fortunately, his guide dog, Orlando, survived the accident and sustained no serious injuries. Williams was interviewed while recovering in the hospital, revealing that witnesses reported Orlando’s heroic actions. The loyal dog barked and attempted to prevent his owner’s fall, even jumping down to assist him in moving out of harm’s way. A fund is being established by an organization to aid Williams, which will be allocated towards future guide dogs if he does not require it. Further details about the fund will be published on their website.
