So touching…but so sad at the same time…
Lilly was rescued and given to Christine Spain by her son. Spain suffered from depression and alcoholism, so Lilly's presence was essential to keeping her on the straightened arrow.
Unfortunately, Spain didn't take some tragic family news well and relapsed.
The woman drank heavily and collapsed on a set of train tracks, with an oncoming cargo train at full speed coming towards her.
But unfortunately, the pit bull took the brunt of the force from the train.
Lilly is hanging on but she's heavily sedated and connected to tubes at a veterinary hospital.
What a courageous pooch!
Watch (above) and hear Lilly's story as she hangs onto life.
We hope she pulls through!
