Here is the story of this 8-year-old refugee boy who helped an injured dog on the street. He stayed with him until help arrived.
Refugee boy helps dog and waits for help to arrive
His name is Su Hüseyin el-Hasan , he is 8 years old and now lives in Turkey .
Hüseyin is a refugee from the war raging in Syria . And unfortunately, he was forced to live in much harsher situations than many other children his age. However, despite his difficult past, this boy was able to feel compassion for others and care for them. This is what happened to him.
Hüseyin, walking down the street near his foster home in the city of Kilis, saw a dog lying on the ground.
It was obvious that the animal had been hit by a car. She could have closed her eyes and continued straight ahead. But that wounded dog, alone in the middle of the road, made her heart shrink. Hüseyin therefore went to help him. Although there was little he could do to alleviate the dog’s suffering, the boy still wanted to try anyway. He went home, took a blanket and placed it over the poor animal’s trembling body.
Then he immediately warned the others, asking for help but not leaving the dog alone, not even for a minute. He remained there until veterinarians arrived on the scene.
When the vets arrived, they took control of the situation and relieved little Hüseyin from his post. They then took the dog away for treatment. Unfortunately, the animal died soon after due to the severity of the injuries.
According to accounts from people close to Hüseyin, Hüseyin burst into tears when he learned that the dog he had helped with so much love and care had not survived. But Hüseyin’s good deeds did not go unnoticed within the community.
A few days after the incident, Cuma Özdemir, the town’s mayor, went to visit Hüseyin at his home to honor him for what he had done for the dog. In this regard, Özdemir said that the boy’s gesture, although it may seem unusual to many people, reveals a high degree of humanity. And in the course of that simple ceremony, Hüseyin received new blankets as a token of appreciation from everyone, authorities and locals alike.
How to help a dog that has been run over in the street
How can we help ourselves when we meet an injured dog on the road? The first thing to do is to get a rag or cloth to block any bleeding or limbs of the animal. If we can move the body , it is important to do so very gently and possibly without making the situation worse. This will help clear the way and rescue the animal in a safer place. Then we must keep the wound as clean as possible, avoiding contact with foreign bodies, dirt or dust. If the dog has fractured limbs , we will see him limping and he will certainly refuse to be touched in the painful area. In this case the intervention of the veterinarian will be necessary.
