WTKR - 02-21


SAN DIEGO (KSWB) – After years of coming to the aid others, first as a medic and then as a police officer, San Diegan Adam Bavario was rescued by heroes of his own. Bavario suffered what’s referred to as a “Widow Maker” heart attack, because of its high fatality rate, collapsing at his San Marcos home in September 2018. As he lay on the floor, Bavario was brought back to consciousness by his dog, an all-white boxer named Roxy, who nudged and licked her loving caretaker’s face until he woke up.
