NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A mother and her two children were attacked and mauled by a stray Rottweiler Saturday morning in Queens.
At first, the dog attacked the woman’s 4-year-old daughter before turning its attention on her.
“It was a kind of shrieking, kind of screaming going on,” Jaan Kangur said.
It was that screaming that brought neighbors, including Kangur, and police to residential Beach Front Drive near the Beach 60th Street playground in Arverne.
“I was on the phone with 911, saw that the dog at that point was actually attacking the mom, I guess she was trying to get the dog off. The dog was biting the mom very hard, gnawing on her arm, not letting go,” Fatin told Baumgarten.
Fatin and her friend Victoria heard the trio’s screams and called for help, 1010 WINS’s Gary Baumgarten reported.
