Right place, right time
Richard Connelly got my attention with this opening in the November 14 Houston Press:
John P. Zepeda of the Metro PD's canine squad had performed a routine bomb search at the Ensemble light-rail station October 28. Finding nothing, he tried to head back.
But train after train was filled with morning commuters headed downtown, so he and his dog waited things out. Which turned out to be a lucky thing, for as they were waiting for yet another train they heard someone yell for help.
That someone was dragging Houston Press music editor Chris Gray off the tracks, where he had fallen after suffering a heart attack.
Security camera documentation of incident:
Update: FireHat points out that Officer Zepeda is a retired Houston Fire Captain.
