Rescued Beagle Clings to Outside of Ambulance to Stay with His Human

He had to be got off fast before the tide came in, but the ambulance couldn't get to him so they had to send a helicopter. But then they couldn't take the dog onto the helicopter, and they didn't want him to get lost, so they ended up by placing the man on a stretcher dangling from the underside of the 'copter and then flying him to dry land very slowly, dangling only about 10ft off the ground, so the dog could see where he was going and could run along underneath.
