David Furukawa, a veteran who is legally blind, was walking his son William to school in Atlanta on Monday, when tragedy struck.
A red Chrysler sped through a stop sign and hit Dave’s guide dog, Simon, an 80-pound Boxer. Then the car hit Dave. And then Simon did something miraculous — he stayed on the job, even with injures that would later prove fatal.
“What people have said is that Simon either got up or jumped out, and pushed my son out of the path of the car,” Furukawa told 11 Alive from his hospital bed.
