Puppy gets long ride in engine compartment, survives

May 27, 2010 12:26:00 PM - thestate.com

All a distraught and panicky Darlene Broome knew May 14 just after dawn is she had a husband in an ambulance ahead of her car, headed for the emergency room at Rock Hill’s Piedmont Medical Center.

She had driven - fast - from their Lancaster home, about 30 miles, when she stopped at a red light at the corner of Cherry Road and Constitution Boulevard, about a mile from the hospital.

“My mind was on my husband but I heard something, a whine, a sound, from under the hood of my car,” Darlene recalled. “I pulled onto Constitution and still heard it, loud, so I pulled into the median.”

Frantic, with a husband with chest pains, Darlene pulled open the hood of the car and the whine now sounded louder and more like crying, even screams.
