“I heard my baby’s bones cracking, I seen the inside of his leg,” said Fontan. Jaxon underwent serious injuries in his arms and legs.
Mercifully, another neighbor who also attended the event interfered. “I just picked up a shovel and started hitting the dog,” said neighbor Mark Philbrick.
Philbrick needed to hit the dog two or three further hits in the head before it ended up running back to its home. Police took the dog into safekeeping following their arrival.
Bentley needed to be taken to the neighborhood hospital for healing, but Jaxon’s injuries were so serious, he was flown to a specialty hospital via helicopter. The first doctors who were curing the two boys said it was one among the dangerous pit bull attacks they’d ever dealt with.
