The crew approached Viviana’s room. On the floor next to Viviana was Polo, who fell on top of her. He wrapped his body around her and covered her completely like a blanket to protect her from the fire. Polo, unfortunately, did not survive. His body was badly damaged by the flames. The loyal dog put his human sister’s life before himself to save it. He gave up his existence to protect something more valuable than his own life.

Erika was quoted as saying:

“She only had burns on her side from this. He stayed with her the whole time in the bedroom and didn’t even go downstairs to go out the door. He was my first child and now I have lost him. And I just pray that I don’t lose her.”

Viviana, who fell into a medically induced coma after being injured in the fire, was being examined. But she was lucky to get burns on only one side of her body thanks to the brave dog‘s quick actions. Because he knew exactly what he had to do to save her life, and was barely exposed to the flames, because the brave dog knew what to do, what he felt he had to do, at any cost.
