Dog helps lead officer to unconscious Germantown woman

Posted:

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- The daughter of a 57-year-old Germantown woman is praising a police officer for saving her mother's life, but the officer is crediting the woman's dog.

Officer Jeff Gonzalez was on patrol Friday morning when he spotted the black lab running loose in the snow. When he tracked it down, he found the woman passed out in a lawn chair in the front porch. The temperature was barely above zero, and paramedics think she may have been outside for two hours in a coat and pajamas.

The woman's daughter, Tianne Wendt, tells WISN-TV that her mother may have passed out from a heart condition now being monitored by doctors.

Wendt says Gonzalez saved her mother's life. But Gonzalez calls it a "Lassie moment" for the dog.
