Heavenly Light Shines Down on Fallen Soldier's 'Miracle Dog

"A light began to solidify in a beam directly down on Hero — a kind of vertical halo."

This image, which ABC confirms is not photo-shopped in any way, has created quite a stir.

It shows Hero, the canine companion of a fallen hero from the U.S. military, Justin Rollin, with a gleaming beam of light shining down from above.

Hero kept Rollin company during his Iraq deployment. After Rollin was tragically killed, Hero made an amazing journey back to the United States to comfort Rollin's grieving family. Then a puppy, Hero is now grown, and pictured above.

The photo, as Reported by ABC News’  Kimberly Launier, was taken during a television shoot for an upcoming 20/20 episode:

"I was filming soldier Justin Rollin’s parents Skip and Rhonda playing with their dog Hero, whose rescue from the Iraq War zone where Justin died was nothing short of a miracle.

Sometimes when Rhonda hugged Hero she would softly pet her face and coo, “Justin, are you in there?”  It was Rhonda’s gentle way of remembering their son and his last living connection to Hero. At one point, Hero wandered off and took a stroll in the backyard. All of a sudden, the clouds broke and a light began to solidify in a beam directly down on Hero — a kind of vertical halo."

What you see above is a photo taken to capture that amazing moment.

ABC has more of Justin Rollin's story here, and will tell the whole emotional tale of this fallen hero Friday on 20/20.
