A Hancock County, Mississippi Sheriff’s deputy is alive today because his K9 partner saved his life on the evening of May 25th.
A law enforcement officer was attacked by a gang of three thugs who stabbed him with a box cutter. They dragged him off in the direction of the nearby woods, and Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier may well have thought May 25, 2015, was going to be the last day of his life.
That is, until he got a hand free and released his K-9 companion to unleash hell on his attackers.
The Hancock County, Mississippi, sheriff’s deputy survived the attack thanks to his furry friend, Lucas, a black Belgian Malinois. When Frazier needed him most, he came through.
Lucas jumped into action and immediately charged the three men. He bit at least one, and possible two of the men, and successfully stopped the attack.
“The three of them were dragging him toward the wooded area, and he was able to break one hand free to activate the button that opens the door and it released Lucas,” Chief Deputy Don Bass said.
“We don’t know how many he got, we just know he had blood all over him,” Sheriff Ricky Adam said.
The automatic door released was only recently installed on a handful of the sheriff’s office K9 units.
