Old dog saves life of missing senile woman
The Yomiuri Shimbun

MITO–An old dog saved the life of a 73-year-old woman with senile dementia who is believed to have wandered from her home to a park about five kilometers away in temperatures that fell below freezing, police said.

The woman, who went missing from her home in Tokaimura, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Wednesday morning, was found safe by a passerby about 30 hours later, snuggled up with the male mongrel in a park in Hitachinaka in the prefecture.

It is believed she spent the night outside in subzero temperatures.

“She may have avoided hypothermia by hugging the dog to keep warm,” a Hitachinaka-Nishi Police Station officer said.
