WATCH: Hero saves dog after her leash gets stuck in elevator

A terrifying video shows a worker at an apartment complex in Springfield, Missouri, saving a dog after the pup's leash gets caught in an elevator door.

In the video, the dog's owner walks in the elevator, but the dog is distracted and doesn't make it inside before the doors close.

Second later, the leash tightens and the poor pooch flies into the air, slamming into the closed doors.

Brian Ussery, a maintenance supervisor at the apartment complex, was walking through a door in the lobby when he saw the dog flying through the air.

The video, which Ussery posted to his Facebook page, shows him running the dog, grabbing her and breaking the leash just in the nick of time.
