VIDEO: Man rescues dog from roof


(CNN) — A dog in Rhode Island ended up in the strangest spot, on the roof of a house. 

Luckily, it was spotted just in time and someone stepped in to get the dog down safely.

A few weeks ago Daylue Goah was looking outside of his third floor window when he saw a strange scene.

“I pulled out my phone and started to document it,” said Goah.

A large dog somehow managed to get on the roof of his neighbor’s home, and it began pacing back and forth.

“I’m just like, ‘Oh my god, don’t do that, don’t do that. Wait for help. Wait for help,'” said Goah.

Neighbor’s called for help.

Goah says at the time, the dog’s owner wasn’t home.

“When I saw the animal control car, I’m like, ‘Okay, help is finally here’. Then, when they left again, I’m like, ‘Oh, my god. He’s being left alone,'” Goah said.

Moments later, the dog’s owner did arrive and so did a good Samaritan who came to help.

The unidentified man climbed onto the roof.

Goah says he and its owner “made magic happen.”

“After several minutes of persuading the dog, he eventually went on top of the roof, got the dog, and went close to the owner. [He] passed the dog through the sunroof and rescued the dog,” Goah said.

The dog’s owner couldn’t be reached for comment.

But Goah says he told him he didn’t know the man who helped saved his pooch from the roof.

“There are people who care even when they don’t know you. It gave me hope, especially from where I come from, Africa,” Goah said. “When someone comes to your aid when you are in need, that’s a great thing.”

According to Goah, the dog’s owner said the dog likely got out through a window on the top floor.
