Kota, a police dog from Winchester City, Virginia is recovering after he fell through a ceiling while dragging a suspect out of an attic crawlspace.

According to reports, when officers arrived at a Winchester City residence to serve a search warrant, the suspect hid in the attic. Kota went in, and while dragging the suspect out, fell through the ceiling onto the hardwood floor below, about 15 feet.

While officers attempted to restrain the man, Kota, with a completely broken leg, crawled back up the stairs to continue his job. Officers on the scene say they were almost brought to tears seeing the dog limp and drag his leg, trying to get back in the fight.

Kota had surgery because of his injuries, and is now recovering.
