As a senior at Johns Hopkins, Tal Bruno is pursuing a degree in writing seminars and lining up as a short-stick defensive midfielder for the men’s lacrosse team. In his spare time, he apparently saves pets.
While stopping at Towson Hot Bagels in the 3200 block of St. Paul Street in Baltimore, the Lutherville resident and Boys’ Latin graduate reportedly rescued a dog from a car that was on fire, according to WBAL-TV. At first, Bruno pulled out his cell phone and began recording the scene, but when a female customer who had been behind him in line raced out of the store and began screaming, he went into action.
While the dog’s owner opened a door on one side, Bruno went to the other side, grabbed the dog and pulled the pet out of harm’s way. Bruno told the TV station that his affection for dogs led him to go from being a bystander to a participant.
“There was a split second where I was, ‘This is a burning car,’ ” Bruno said. “There was a lot of smoke, flames. Can’t see really well. It was scary.”
