You remember Cecil Williams. He’s the blind man who fell onto the New York City subway tracks, taking his guide dog, an 11-year-old black Labrador named Orlando, with him. Orlando had tried to hold Cecil up before he fell — Cecil had become lightheaded and dizzy — and once on the tracks, Orlando wouldn’t leave Cecil’s side. Despite the train coming at them. Despite the train going over them.
That’s right — both Cecil and his dog managed to lie down and duck at the right moment.
