Duisburg (dpa / lnw) - The police in Duisburg helped an old man and his dog.

Because the senior fell in his apartment, the fire brigade and police were on duty.

The man had to be taken to a hospital, as the Duisburg police reported on Twitter on Tuesday.

Before the dog was also picked up, the police patrol took the animal for a walk in the fresh air.

Then the four-legged friend was picked up from the shelter.
