BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — On Oct. 11, 2007, Chris Carswell had a seizure and a few years later a star was born.

The star is Bronx, a German shepherd service dog trained to detect Chris’s seizures. Bronx has won the service dog category of the American Humane Association’s Hero Dog Awards and is in the running for the organization’s Top Dog.

A film crew was recently at Satilla Marsh Elementary to recreate some of the activity when Chris had his first and nearly last seizure. His heart stopped at the school, and Glynn County EMTs brought him back.

Chris has had a number of seizures since then, his mother, Janet Carswell said, but “he had the one that ended his life here.”
