Man defends children from violent dog, NBC, Los Angeles, Calif. 10/07/13

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Two children were outside on a public street in San Bernardino, Calif. when a pit bull attacked them. As the children tried to escape from the dog, the children’s aunt picked up a toy scooter and attempted to use it to fight the dog off. A neighbor noticed the attack, retrieved a gun, and shot and killed the dog.

Following the incident, the aunt explained to a reporter that she was fearful for the children’s lives and said that the armed citizen is a hero. One of the children was taken to a local hospital for her injuries, but is now fine. (NBC, Los Angeles, Calif. 10/07/13)
