Hancock County, Mississippi Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Frazier thought he was dead on May 25, 2015, when he was dragged into the woods by a group of armed thugs.
As the thugs dragged him to the woods to kill him, he managed to break one hand free and hit a button on his belt. That button released Lucas, his K9.
Immediately after that, Lucas rushed out of Frazier’s squad car and attacked the three men attacking his partner.
“I had three people on me and I’m not a very big man, and they basically whipped my butt,” Frazier told the newspaper.
“I had a button on my belt that I wear, and when I hit the button Lucas jumped out of the car and attacked all three of them and they ran away,” Frazier said. “That’s why he’s my hero.”
The odds didn’t matter to Lucas, who rushed in to save his partner.
“He knew. I could hear him coming. I couldn’t see anything because the blood was all in my eyes, but I could hear him coming, growling and making these sounds … he sounded like a wolf,” Frazier told a group of students as he recounted the story for a group of children in August, 2015. “I thought, ‘Now he’s gonna get you.’”
Frazier credited Lucas for saving his life and went as far as calling him a “deputy.”
“He would put his life on the line for me,” Frazier said the students. “He is a deputy. I would die for him too.”
