Dog saves owner's life after her heart stops

A dog has been credited with saving the life of its owner, Joanna Mellor, after her heart stopped beating during her sleep.

Leo the Labrador woke up Miss Mellor's boyfriend, who dialled 999 and gave her CPR until an ambulance got to their home in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) paramedic Glenn Radford said she would have died without her pet's help.
