ZANESVILLE, Ohio, -- In Ohio, police are giving credit to a man's dog--who called 9-1-1 after the man suffered a seizure. Terry McGlade says his dog, Major, did exactly as he was trained to do.

McGlade shows us what it was like as he suffered a seizure, and major went into action. The dog figured out how to use his paws on a cell phone in McGlade's pocket, and called 911.

The phone had been set up to automatically call 911, however major was never specifically trained to use the phone.

McGlade was wounded in Afghanistan by a road side bomb. He got Major, a rescue dog, trained to sense his seizures coming on.

When police arrived, Major was in the front yard and led them to his master.
