A young Sacramento girl was to undergo a third surgery Tuesday for mauling wounds she suffered from a pit bull attack Saturday evening.
Sabrina Carrasco, 9, was attacked in an apartment complex lawn area at 7718 Lamancha Way about 9 p.m., according to Gina Knepp, spokeswoman for the Sacramento City Animal Control.
The girl was with a teenager and two toddlers playing when the pit bull headed for them, according to witnesses. The teenager was able to grab the little kids. Carrasco couldn't run away in time.
Knepp said the girl has injuries to her face, shoulder, side and back. UC Davis Medical Center officials said Carrasco is in good condition.
