When police officers were called to reports of a suicidal woman at a motel in Florida, little did they know the horror they were about to witness. Deputies and Daytona Beach police went to the motel after receiving a call that this woman had attacked a maid and was threatening to jump off a balcony.
Officers arrived to find the 35-year-old holding a German shepherd dog which she then threw off the motel balcony. Thankfully the dog landed feet first and ran away. Passersby came to the rescue by carefully rounding the dog up so he could get the treatment he needed.
Volusia County Animal Services took custody of the dog who didn’t suffer serious injuries and named her “Miracle.” An x-ray revealed she had a sewing needle lodged into her right thigh, which was then safely removed at an animal hospital.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office released body camera video of the incident which resulted in the woman being arrested and placed in custody.
Her name is Allison Murphy and she is facing felony charges of animal cruelty and resisting an officer with violence. Miracle is recovering with animal services as authorities plan to submit a petition for custody over the dog
