87-year-old falls in the snow unable to move until smart hound raises the alarm

Animals can sense situations that we have no awareness of and in some cases it can lead to saving a life.

When 87-year-old Noreen decided to fill her bird feeder she stepped outside into below freezing temperatures but unfortunately wasn’t able to make it back inside after slipping on the ice.

She lay in the snow unable to move in the yard of her Minnesota home until a dog alerted her human to the danger and has been credited with saving her life.

The temperature was one below zero when midnight was taken for a walk by her owner Tim Curfman.

As he tried to get the four-year-old Labrador-mix into the car, she refused to go and sensed something was wrong.

“She had her ears perked up looking at me,” Tim told CBS Minnesota. “She doesn’t normally do that. Sometimes you get that feeling something’s up.”

‘She could not have gotten up’

Tim followed his sharp hound who led him to Noreen lying on the floor in the snow.

“We figured she was out there at least a half an hour,” Tim told CBS Minnesota. “She could not have gotten up because her gloves had gotten wet and she didn’t have enough strength in her fingers to push herself up. Nothing around the corner to get up and get a hold of either.”

Tim helped her inside and his wife got her into some dry clothes.

Noreen, who didn’t want to be interviewed on camera, said Midnight saved her in the nick of time and she suffered no injuries.

“We’ve been very proud of her because it’s not every dog that pays attention to things like this,” Tim said.
