Russian security cameras never fail to capture amazing and horrifying things, like this pooch who narrowly escaped a fate worthy of a Final Destination movie. Yahoo! News posted this footage from a St. Petersburg elevator, which shows a woman and a child entering the elevator trailed by an fluffy dog. The dog doesn't seem to even be theirs, but that's unclear. It's leash is still outside of the lift as the doors close and the elevator begins to descend. Fortunately, these two humans were there to save the dog in the nick of time.
Weirdly enough, this is not the first time a Russian person has saved a dog from an elevator.
If there's any lesson to be learned by Russian dog owners here, it's to use the stairs.
