There can never be too many videos about animals doing awesome shit, and that’s why I’m sharing this with you. Here, we learn the story of a cyclist, Paul Horton, who lost control on his bike and flipped over the handlebars, landing headfirst and becoming immediately paralyzed from the chest down.

He would have been even worse off, though, if not for his dog. According to the video, the dog ran to a nearby walking trail [SPOILER ALERT] at the same time that Horton’s neighbors happened by, and began barking like crazy. He then led them to Horton.
