Ben Duke only had seconds to react when he found a terrified terrier with its leash caught in an elevator.
Duke, who is the General Manager at the Roadside Inn in Greenville, South Carolina exited a storage closet to find Boo Boo the dog in real trouble.
Boo Boo’s owner had stepped onto the elevator thinking that his dog was close behind – but he was not close enough.
As the elevator started to go, security footage captured Ben’s quick reflexes as he scoops the pooch up and tears the leash away from its collar with his bare hands.
The owner, who had been sweating bullets as he came back downstairs started crying tears of gratitude when he saw Boo Boo was safe.
