BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – A 13-year-old was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries after being attacked by at least two pit bulls, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy, who is also fully trained as a paramedic, responded to the scene in the 22000 block of Escalante Run in northeast Bexar County on Thursday afternoon.
BCSO said six pit bulls were removed from the home, but at least two were believed to be involved in the attack. The circumstances that preceded the mauling weren’t immediately clear, investigators said.
The teen was taken to University Hospital by helicopter with serious injuries, and it’s believed he will survive.
The dogs were kept in the home as pets or to be sold and belonged to the teen’s father, BCSO said.
It’s unknown if anyone will face charges.
