A homeless man found himself ill in a deserted farmhouse, and put a message asking for help in a bottle, which he threw from a window. A border collie called Ben found the bottle, and took it to his owner, who found the homeless man. The man had suffered an attack of asthma, and had not eaten for over a week. He recovered after a stay in hospital.
