Lao yanzhi, 61, is a retired worker with a 20-year history of diabetes. It was another cold night with snow flakes drifting in the sky. Lao was watching the gate for his son at a local factory, but collapsed at around 8:30 p.m. due to low blood sugar, according to Secret China.
As far as he can remember, he didn’t regain consciousness til 6 a.m. the next day. When he opened his eyes, Lao found that the pack of little dogs he raised had surrounded him, and some were lying on his body like a blanket. He quickly realized that his furry friends were using their warm bodies to protect him from the cold.
He was then sent to hospital where the doctor told the reporter that Lao’s hands were dark and covered in blisters because he wasn’t wearing gloves, but the rest of his body had remained in good condition.
From a medical perspective, this is simply a miracle.
In such cold weather, people are likely to lose their lives if they stay outside unconscious for several hours. So Lao was very lucky to get away with just frostbite.
Lao said he started to adopt dogs three or four years ago. He found the first one at a garbage dump, so he took her home and named her Lily. Her hind legs were injured and she cannot walk properly. Most of the dogs he has now are Lily’s puppies.
