Dog Saves Lives Of 60 Men College Students
Laramie, Wyo., Feb. 10 (AP)—A persistent pooch named “Piedmont” was credited with saving the lives of 60 men students at the University of Wyoming early today.
The little German schnauzer’s barking when he became sick aroused some of the residents of a 72-room, one-story frame type wartime dormitory. They discovered carbon monoxide fumes in the building.
Only eighteen men were hospitalized and seven of those were released this afternoon. Hospital officials said the condition of the eleven was “very good.”
University officials said the gas seeped through the building on a back draft created by a combination of wind and open doors.
