Woman helps rescue pig on interstate

When Christine Gamache was driving along Interstate 205 and saw a pig fall out the back of a tractor-trailer rig, she didn't just scratch her head and drive on. She pulled over and stood by the 500-pound animal, possibly averting a freeway pile-up, the State Patrol said.
"She stayed by the pig until we showed up," Trooper Todd Gates said.
Gamache told Gates she'd been driving northbound on I-205 on Monday when the pig somehow fell out the back of an open-top box trailer. It hit the ground spinning.
"It rolled across the highway into the median," Gates said.
After dodging the pig and another truck, Gamache, who had no cell phone, stopped her car and walked up to the pig. The pig was favoring a sore left rear leg but didn't seem seriously hurt, Gates said.
Later, Gates, paramedics and a Clark County sheriff's deputy joined them on the median until a man who works with livestock arrived on the scene to take the pig to safety until its owners could be located.
