As he made it outside, he looked up and saw his neighbours dog, Luna hanging by its hind legs from the balcony above, almost about to fall. He tried to nudge Luna back to its apartment by using a broom, to no avail.

He then decides to do the slightly crazy, no, the full-blown crazy, as a crowd builds below the man and the dog, Diego climbs out of the window, begins to climb towards the trapped dog above. He managed to get to the dog and pushed it back through the railing into safety. Diego climbs into his neighbour's apartment above him and is safe from harms way.
