A boy in Columbus survived a pit bull attack over the weekend thanks to some observant people.
They were driving down the street, and realized the dog and the child weren’t just playing.
They say the dog was chewing the clothes off the boy and was going for his neck so they pulled their car onto the lawn and distracted the dog.
Franklin County Animal Control officers says the pit bull seemed to snap and attack the boy.
Corporal Joe Rock, an Animal Control Officer said “If that hadn’t come along and did what they did that boy could be a lot worse off, if not dead.”
The boy is recovering at a Columbus Hospital.
