Sam is 13-years-old, but has as much energy as a puppy. A few months ago, his owner Bill McCourt didn’t think he’d live to see this day. “It truly is a miracle that he could survive this. His pelvis was broken in three or four places and he had five broken ribs and a severe puncture in his bottom.”
He says Sam either jumped or fell off of a balcony and drifted with the wind into a jacuzzi fifteen floors down.
Kyle Wahlberg was at the home when it happened. “The best part out of the whole entire thing was to see him alive.”
Bill says no one is to blame for the fall. He says Sam is partially blind so he probably got disoriented and slipped through the railings.
Many have a hard time believing Sam’s story and to them, Bill says it’s now just a fact of life. “His will to survive is obviously on his own.”
