Dog saved a 13-year-old deaf from fire by giving him 'warning licks'
A pit bull became a hero in Indianapolis (USA) after rescued from fire a 13-year-old deaf, reported The Independent on Sunday, in its electronic edition.
The boy, Nick Lamb, who was born deaf, was home alone and asleep, on Wednesday evening, without his hearing devices when in the house, it erupted the fire. Although the fire had spread, and the house was filled with smoke, the boy did not hear the dog’s (Ace) barking warning. Instead of fleeing to save, the dog began to lick his face until the boy woke up.

"Ace licked me on the face and woke me up. I kept telling him to stop. I thought he wanted to eat," said Nick Lamb, who managed to leave the house with the dog covering his mouth and nose with a t-shirt.

Lindsay Bernard, Nick's mother, told a news agency that the pit bull was the one responsible for saving the life of Nick, because he would not be awake because of the noise.

The fire caused property damage worth $175,000, but all of them are now indebted to Ace for its deed. Another animal that was in the house, a cat, was saved only after firefighters arrived and was taken to a veterinarian for recovery after smoke inhalation, reported Agerpres.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
