FRESNO, Calif. (KGO) -- A man in the Central Valley woke up in the hospital to learn his dog had also survived a really bad crash.

Tony Escobedo, a battalion chief with the Fresno Fire Department, posted photos on Facebook that show the rescue after a car and train collided.

The driver was rushed to hospital. Then firefighters heard a whimper -- it was the man's dog.

They found "Little Zeus" trapped underneath a seat and used the jaws of life to get him out.

The dog is now recovering.
