LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) – Police in Pennsylvania say a pit bull escaped from its yard and somehow got into a minivan, attacking a 2-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy as they sat strapped into their car seats.
A witness who tells WPMT-TV he helped wrestle the dog off the kids Monday says the boy had extreme facial injuries after the attack.
Tom Grab says he pulled the dog off and held onto it, but it managed to wriggle free and resume attacking.
He says the mother was eventually able to flee and drive to a hospital.
