Child bitten by pit bull in Deerfield Beach

Posted on 23 October 2011 by LeslieM

BSO deputies are investigating a child bitten by a dog at the 300 block of SE 1 Street. The eight-year-old boy was outside his residence when a loose pit bull attacked him. As the child ran into his house, the dog chased him inside. Family members shooed-off the dog and first-arriving BSO deputies gave chase on foot after the dog. They ran after the dog for about two blocks, and as they reached the pit bull, it was attempting to attack another dog. Deputies confined the pit bull until Broward County Animal Care and Regulation workers arrived and removed the dog. The child was treated by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Deerfield Beach units then airlifted via BSO Air Rescue to Broward General Medical Center, arriving at the hospital at 7:19 p.m. Sunday. The child was reported to be conscious and breathing and sustained a laceration to the face and multiple bites. Injuries are non life-threatening. The call was received at 6:40 p.m.
