Footage from a traffic camera overlooking a busy freeway in Santiago, Chile captured a dog performing a heroic act — pulling an injured friend from oncoming traffic.

The video, from Azteca America Colorado, shows an injured dog laying in the middle of a freeway after being hit by a car, while a rescue dog dodges traffic to run to its side. The rescue dog then drags the severely injured canine across lanes of traffic as cars swerve around it.

No motorists stopped to help either dog but the video shows a highway crew arriving at the end of the video.

The translation of the announcer is as follows:

"These images seen from the surveillance cameras show a very common situation with our overpopulated highways. It is normal for us to see dogs run over. In the video, we can see this dog fighting for his life because he was run over by the vehicle.

"What is very touching is to see the very heroic actions of this other dog who is trying to pull him to the side of the highway. We are going to keep seeing things like this until we find a solution to the dogs living on the streets."link (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,463326,00.html)

Incredible and strange at the same time.

No motorists stopped... [pops on thinking cap] Yet who here is the animal?

Look at the traffic. All semi trucks. Are you going to stop and try to help?

Its like that guy who got hit by a car in Connecticut. The Security cams caught it on tape and the guy way laying there in the street while people just looked at him.

We could take a few pointers from this dog...
