Dog Survives Fire by Jumping in Tub, Breathing Through Drain

‘You might think this big shaggy Newfoundland dog, named Jackson, read the firefghter’s survival manual. The dog did everything right when a fire destroyed its Farmingville, Long Island home on Monday.

Firefighters say they found Jackson in the bathtub with his nose pressed against the drain getting fresh air.

The dog’s owner, Debbie Credidio, said that Jackson likes to lay in the bathroom to escape the heat. Going to his favorite spot may have saved the 3-year-old Newfoundland’s life.

Firefighters Vince Egbert and Edgar Trejo pulled aside a shower curtain and found the dog “actually sucking air out of the drainpipe, which is an old-school thing that a fireman would do.”’
