Online donations have risen to more than $100,000 to help a New York blind man keep the guide dog who helped rescue him from a potentially fatal subway fall a week before Christmas. Cecil Williams, 61, who suffers from diabetes, fainted on Tuesday while waiting for the train. His 10-year-old dog Orlando tried to tug him away from toppling off the platform. When it emerged that Williams could no longer afford to keep Orlando after his guide dog retires next year, donations poured in.
