A New York City man credits his guide dog for saving his life after he fainted and fell onto subway tracks on Tuesday, just as a train was approaching. The dog, Orlando, is credited with nudging his owner Cecil Williams into a space between the train and its rails, as at least one subway car rolled over them. Orlando walked away without a scratch and his owner was hospitalized with minor injuries.
