The officer fell into a trap set up by gang members and he thought he was going to die. Luckily, his dog was able to rescue him just in time.
Deputy Todd Frazier from Long Beach, Mississippi was targeted by three suspected gang members. Viral Thread suggested that the three goons were perhaps trying to prove something for themselves which was why they attacked an official.
Frazier was on patrol when he saw a man who was unconscious near the wheel of a car parked by the side of the road. He stopped his car and walked towards the unconscious man.
It was at that point when he was attacked by two men in front of him and another mauled him from behind.
Chief Deputy Don Bass described the incident and said, "They told him they were going to slit his throat, and they were dragging him toward the woods.”
As soon as Frazier realized that his life was at risk, he quickly pushed a button on his keychain that unlocked the canine compartment of his vehicle.
Just in time, Lucas, Frazier’s police dog, burst out of the car. The dog immediately realized that the police officer was in grave danger.
Frazier recalled, "He knew. I could hear him coming. I couldn't see anything because the blood was all in my eyes, but I could hear him coming, growling and making these sounds... he sounded like a wolf.”
Like the brave dog that he is, Lucas courageously attacked the three gangsters.
Sheriff Ricky Adam spoke about the attack and said that all of them weren’t sure how many of the three men was successfully taken down by Lucas. Although, when the incident was over, the dog was all covered in blood.
Unfortunately, Frazier and Lucas were both hurt after the altercation. Frazier received a deep cut on his forehead and a few minor injuries. He was quickly taken to the hospital as soon as the authorities arrived on the scene.
As for Lucas, he tore a ligament during the attack and had lost a few of his teeth. He is in good shape now as he was taken to the veterinarian afterward.
