Dog survives after lead gets caught in lift (VIDEO)
This dog is lucky to be alive after his hapless owner got into a lift and forgot his pooch -- which had his leash attached -- was still outside.
CCTV footage shows the horrified button-punching reaction of the dog owner when he realises what's happened and that his pet could be seriously injured.
As he travelled towards his Chicago apartment, the man realised that he is still holding the lead but that his 18-month-old bulldog cross is not in the lift with him.
Luckily, video from another camera shows that while the dog was lifted from the ground as the lead travelled upwards, it snapped and he survived the ordeal relatively uninjured.
When the distraught owner eventually got back to the lobby, he found the dog with a woman who lives in the block and had seen the horror unfold.
