Pit Bull Leads Good Samaritan To Stricken Owner

Bayville, NJ, resident Frank Delarosa thought it was strange to see a pit bull running down a path near the cranberry bogs at Double Trouble State Park in Berkeley, her leash dragging behind her.

Delarosa coaxed the one-year-old pit bull mix over to him, picked her up and started to head up the path to the park office.

But "Lilly" was restless. Delarosa decided to put her down. She began pulling and tugging him down the path, back towards the cranberry bogs.

It was there he found Lilly's owner unconscious about 150 yards down on the path. Dona Timoney, 51, of Beachwood, had suffered some kind of "medical event" while on a walk with her dog. She was airlifted to St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston

Good work, Lilly! We salute you for saving your owner!

by the way --- today is 

Pitty Post Day!
