One Tennessee family are so used to freight trains passing through their neighborhood at all hours of the day that they barely notice all the noise anymore.
But when mom Jada Borum noticed the train conductor was holding down the horn longer than normal, she knew someone or something must be on the tracks and started counting her kids to make sure everyone was accounted for. Before she could finish, she started hearing screams.
Jada sprinted over to the nearby tracks and found two of her daughters screaming and crying but standing safely to the side of the train. They quickly explained that the family dog, Buddy, had been walking with them and was hit from behind when he got frightened by the train and tried to outrun it.
“I just thought he was dead,” Jada said. But once the freight train finally passed by, they found Buddy lying on his side. He had several gashes on his face and had come injuries to his hip and tail, but he was miraculously alive. The family immediately rushed Buddy to the vet, who treated him for his injuries and told the family their yellow lab will make a full recovery. “I’m thankful he’s alive, he’s amazed me,” Jada said.
Watch the entire video below to see how this miracle dog is after her near-death experience.
