LYON COUNTY, Ky. (WKRN) —  A touching photo shows a devoted pup who survived a bad crash in the arms of a man who rescued the dog’s owner.  

The crash shut down Interstate 24 eastbound Friday morning in Lyon County, Ky.  

State Fire Marshall Bill Compton had just freed a crash survivor and was comforting the man’s dog. This dog would not leave his master’s side until he was airlifted to the hospital. 

Lyon County State Hwy. Superintendent Jordan Yates captured this moment, “I snapped this pic of an exhausted, emotional and dedicated Bill Compton, resting and caring for the dog.”

The pup is back home with his family tonight.
