A man age 71 years was out walking his 2 dogs in the Lake District of the United Kingdom. He collapsed. The Golden Retriever stayed with him, while his Labrador went off to track down a woman who had passed them several minutes before. Realizing that the dog was very agitated, she followed him back to the collapsed man. She phoned the local Mountain Rescue team, who evacuated the man to hospital.

He recovered safely. The Mountain Rescue team leader described the dogs actions as "remarkable".  He stated that while trained rescue dogs could perform such a task, it was very rare for an untrained dog to alert a stranger, and persuade them to follow.

Here is the story.
