Pig Saves Family From Fire, All Are Lucky


Lucky the pig saved a family from a fire on June 8 in Mount Carmel, IL

The family pig, named Lucky (of course), jumped into action just after the fire broke out in a mobile home at about 4:40 a.m.

The family is staying in a hotel while they figure out what they’re going to do next, but they’re feeling lucky that their pet pig squealed at the right time.

“They’re loving. They can be very protective, actually,” homeowner Ina Farler says.
