Police were called after the family’s foster Pit bull attacked two children. One child was airlifted with severe facial injuries.
On Friday at approximately 2:18 p.m., Coral Springs Police received a call to the 2500 block of NW 106 Ave about the family dog attacking their children ages 11 and 12.
According to CSPD Officer Chris Swinson, an 11-year-old was severely bit by the dog, and then his 12-year-old brother tried to intervene, and he attacked. Upon seeing the commotion, the mother tried to help, and the dog bit her in her hand and arm. The 12-year-old went and got a knife and stabbed the dog and the dog retreated into one of the bedrooms.
The 11-year-old was bit on the face and sustained severe but not life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to Broward General. The 12-year-old, who was bit on the back of the head, was taken by Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Rescue to Broward General, along with his mother.
The dog was taken to Coral Springs Animal Hospital, where it will be quarantined.
