Dog saves sleeping couple from fire

Daisy, a 3-year-old spaniel, died a hero. Daisy, a 3-year-old spaniel, died a hero. A major fire at a kosher supermarket in London brought forth an unexpected hero: Daisy, a 3-yearold spaniel dog. Alex Gibson and Charlotte Perren were sleeping in their apartment when the blaze broke out at the Kay’s store downstairs on Sunday morning, June 4.

Gibson and Perren, who is pregnant, may have met a tragic fate were it not for the fact that the dog, who belongs to Gibson’s mother, was staying with them. Daisy started barking as the room filled with smoke, rousing the couple. The two managed to escape the building, although Daisy sadly died of smoke inhalation.

Gibson, who broke his foot falling down the stairs, lauded Daisy’s bravery. “Daisy was our hero,” he told The Jewish Chronicle. “It was fate she happened to be staying with us that night. She saved both of our lives and our neighbors.”

No people died in the fire, the cause of which is unknown.
