Blind NYC man in subway fall gets new guide dogJanuary 28, 2014 @ 3:45 pm
YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. (AP) - There's a new best friend for a blind man who fell onto subway tracks in New York City.
Cecil Williams has a new guide dog named Godiva to succeed his previous dog, Orlando. Williams and the 2-year-old yellow Labrador graduated from the Guiding Eyes for the Blind school on Saturday.
The 61-year-old Williams lost consciousness and fell off a platform in December. Orlando followed him onto the tracks and tried to revive him. A slow-moving train passed over them, but they were unharmed.
Donations came pouring in, allowing Williams to keep the aging 11-year-old Orlando as a pet.
