Siblings Save Girl, 7, From Dog Attack


Hayli Baker is in one piece after a pit bull attacked her on Wednesday. The 7-year-old was taking a break from home school with her two older siblings and a couple friends on South Sixth Street when the dog charged at them, 10TV's Ashleigh Barry reported.
"The dog started running the streets. It started rounding me and I was screaming, flipping out with the 911 operator, and (he told me to) calm down and I'm like, 'No, the dog is still out here,'" said Holly Gilardi, Baker's mother.
The pit bull's jaw locked onto Baker's shoulder.
Baker's siblings used a shovel to get the dog to loosen the grip.
The children ran into the house and animal control was called to to capture the dog.
Baker received 13 stitches to close a wound, but she was expected to fully recover.
The pit bull was later euthanized, according to Holly Gilardi.
10TV's attempts to reach the dog's owner were not successful.
