Linda Parr, of Miami, was traveling down the Florida Turnpike Sunday when she got into an accident and her vehicle overturned; trapping her, and her dogs Leia and Stella, inside.
Orange County Fire Rescue responded to the scene after several people stopped to call 911.
One good samaritan was able to free Parr’s puppy Leia. Another family cared for the dog until Parr’s husband arrived on the scene.
Chief Otto Drozd said it took then more than 30 minutes to remove Parr from her vehicle, and she was transported to the hospital.
Par called Fire Rescue Tuesday to find out the crew who helped her.
“Those firefighters saved my life,” said Parr.
Though she said she felt “blessed,” Parr is still missing her dog Stella.
“I miss my baby. I am hoping someone has seen her or has her. My husband and I can’t wait bring her home.”
Parr is asking the public’s help to find Stella.
Stella is adult Belgian Malinois Shepherd, weighing 65 lbs. She has a collar with identification tag and is microchipped.
According to Parr, Stella knows how to sit, come, and stay and down.
