According to TV news station WCSC, a family dog is credited with saving a 7-month-old baby boy from an abusive babysitter.
The boy’s father Benjamin Jordan of Charleston, South Carolina spoke to reporters about the incident: “About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door. He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.”
The local woman, 22-year-old Alexis Khan, was sentenced to three years of prison after Jordan hid a camera phone between a pair of couch cushions.
“It started with cussing,” Jordan said. “Then you hear slap noises and his crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry. I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab him up.”
Thanks to the Jordan’s loyal black lab, their son is free from harm and danger.
