Hero family dog dies saving the life of little girl in house fire by lying on top of her and refusing to move, preventing fatal burns
A dog is being credited with saving the life of a little girl who was trapped in a deadly house fire.
Eight-month-old Viviana Claire was inside of her house in the 6800 block of Gough Street around 10:30pm Sunday in Baltimore when her mother, Erika, stepped outside to her car for a minute and when she looked back, the house was engulfed in flames.
‘I just heard her crying and I couldn’t get to her,’ Poremski told WBAL-TV. ‘I tried really hard, everyone in the neighborhood tried. They were kicking the doors in and kicking the windows out. I couldn’t (get her out). Nobody could.’
Hero: Viviana Claire’s pooch, Polo, died trying to save the little girl from a house fire and lay over her body, preventing one side of it from being burned
