A pit bull had mauled a 3-year-old boy and was biting the
youngster's mother when a passing motorist stopped to see what was
going on. Corey Kelley said that at first he thought Shonda Busby
was playing with the dog in the family's rural yard in Chatom, Ala.
He turned his truck around for another look and saw blood. "The
closer I got to her, I could see the blood and bite marks on her
arms. I pulled up and said, Are you alive?' She said, 'Yes, get this
dog off me. He's biting me; he's killing me.'" Kelley quickly drove
home, called 911 and grabbed his .22caliber rifle. Unaware that
Busby was shielding her 3-year-old, her rescuer said he drove as
close as he could, about 8 feet away. From his truck, he aimed at
the dog and told Busby to lie as still as she could. "Shoot!" she
told him. Kelly's mortal shot hit the animal between the eyes. When
Busby sat up, Kelley saw the little boy; his scalp was torn and
there were bite marks all over his body. Following the tragedy, the
child was treated at Children's Hospital and was in fair condition.
His mother required surgery. Kelley said he did not feel like a
hero. "I'd do it again in a heartbeat," he said. "I'm just an old
country boy. Helping people is just something I like doing."
