A 3-year-old boy was attacked by two pit bull dogs on the Chicago’s South Side.
The boy was at his aunt’s home on the 73rd block of South Kingston when the attack happened.
Neighbor Willie Riley, 48, was called to help rescue the boy by a 9-year-old relative.
He says when he got inside the house, the two dogs were trying to pull apart the boy.
Riley chased the dogs away with a stick and carried the boy to a nearby fire station.
The child suffered wounds to his ears, neck, torso and leg.
He was treated at the fire house and transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital.
His injuries are not life threatening and he is expected to be OK.
Riley is being called a hero for risking his life to save the boy.
This is still under investigation. No word if the dogs were removed from the home.
