Phoenix, AZ (January 8, 2020) – A 2-year-old girl is in critical condition after a dog attack at a Phoenix home on Tuesday evening.
According to officers from the Phoenix Police Department, the incident happened around 6:30 p.m. at a home near 35th Avenue and Campbell Avenue. The mother of the girl told officers that the dog, which was inside the home at the time, jumped up and snatched the girl out of her arms and began attacking her.
Someone inside the home reportedly shot and killed the dog, but their identity is unknown. The child was transported to the hospital via ambulance in critical condition.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident and have not said who owns the home or the dog.
Our thoughts are with the injured child and their family in hopes of a full recovery.
Thousands of people across the country require medical care for dog attacks each day. And in Arizona, dog bites are one of the most common causes of serious injury. Furthermore, young children are disproportionately affected by dog bites and attacks statewide, leading to hundreds of injuries yearly.
These accidents can result in tragic, unforeseen circumstances for victims and their families. From expensive medical bills and emotional trauma to long-term physical injuries, victims pay the price in the aftermath of a dog attack. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve sustained injuries due to the negligent actions of other parties.
