When winter rears its chilly head, the inclement weather brings with it some dangerous elements.
From slippy roads to frostbite, the perils of winter are not to be ignored.
Given the harsh winter we experienced this year, it’s no surprise how many accidents occurred.
87-year-old Noreen was one such victim of the frigid conditions.
Noreen’s neighbor, Tim Curfman, is the owner of Midnight, a black Labrador mix.
Tim and Noreen live in the heart of Minnesota and are no strangers to freezing temperatures.
It’s for this reason why Noreen thought she’d be safe when stepping out to replenish her bird feeder.
Unfortunately, the task proved too dangerous for her.
Midnight, who had seen Noreen lying in the snow, alerted his owner.
Tim states that he knew something was up by the way his dog’s ears perked up.
When Tim realized something was amiss, he encouraged Midnight to lead him to the problem.
Midnight guided Tim to the other side of the house where Noreen lay helpless on the ground.
Tim galvanized into action, promptly lifting Noreen to her feet and taking her indoors.
Tim surmised that she’d been there for no more than 30 minutes.
Upon realizing what was going on, Tim’s wife gathered some dry clothes and cloaked Noreen in a towel.
Fortunately, Noreen suffered no injuries or frostbite.
She’s exceedingly grateful for Tim, his family, and clever dog.
