RALEIGH, N.C. — A puppy is receiving intensive medical care after being thrown out of a car window into a frozen ditch in southern Wake County.

WTVD reported that a Good Samaritan witnessed the owner throw the two-week-old puppy from the car and quickly rushed to help.

The puppy was brought to the SPCA of Wake County for immediate treatment. Darci VanderSlik, the SPCA of Wake County’s marketing manager, said it was one of the coldest days of the year so far.

“If that Good Samaritan did not find this puppy, her chances of survival are almost zero,” VanderSlik said.
