(BRADENTON) — How far will a father go to help his young son out of danger?

Luis Brignoni, 41, a Bradenton-area landscaper, found out Friday when one of the family dogs bit off his son’s pinky finger and swallowed it.

Brignoni rushed out to his fenced backyard with a gun and killed the dog, cut its stomach open, and retrieved the digit, carefully sending it with his bleeding son aboard a helicopter to a St. Petersburg hospital.
