Donations pour in, Blind man gets to keep Hero Dog who saved his life

Donations are pouring in to help a blind man keep his service dog. Cecil Williams was walking on the subway platform in New York with his service dog, Orlando when witnesses saw him slipping and falling onto the tracks.

Williams was saved by the quick actions of his service dog and an MTA employee who yelled for them to put their heads down, just before the subway train ran over the pair, leaving them with only a scratch.

Then it was revealed that Williams cannot keep his service dog because his insurance will not provide coverage. Good citizens intervened with their wallets.

Merry Christmas Mr. Williams and Orlando.
