(Newser) – A 3-year-old girl in Poland who got lost and spent the night in a marshland as temperatures fell below freezing has a little dog to thank for her life, reports the BBC. "For the whole night the animal was with the girl—it never left her," says a local firefighter. The temperature dropped to about 23 degrees Fahrenheit, and the little girl was wet, but the pooch kept her warm enough, he said. Firefighters eventually found the girl, and she's now recuperating in a local hospital.
