A Texas six-year-old and his neighbors were playing on Sunday evening when a loose pit bull ran up and bit the six-year-old in his face

19-year-old Grant Brown who lived a few houses away saw the attack and ran towards the pitbull

He was able to distract the pitbull while the six-year-old ran into the house to his terrified mother.

KWTX reports that Brown said the dog was on top of him and struggled for a few seconds before he was able to get on his feet and run as well.

The six-year-old was taken to the hospital and reportedly received staples for a laceration to the head and a few bruises and a few bruises to his face but he’s expected to be OK and the 19-year-old hero only sustained a cut to his hand.
