An 11-year-old girl has been left with life-changing injuries after she was attacked by a dog before being rescued by passers-by. Dramatic images captured from a video which was shot at the scene in East London yesterday, shows a taxi driver jumping out of his car with a bat to rescue the girl.
The early morning attack happened on Johnson Road, Tower Hamlets, yesterday, at around 8.30am.And that fact is: where's the beast now?
A Met Police spokesman told The Sun: 'Police were called at 08:31hrs to Ben Johnson Road, E1 after an 11-year-old girl was attacked by a dog.
'A member of the public intervened to free the victim.
'The owner of the dog left the scene prior to police arrival.
'The girl was taken to hospital for treatment to her hand - her condition is not life-threatening but may be life changing.
'No arrests at this time. Enquiries are ongoing.'It's not encouraging that the police don't tell us it's safely in kennels or a vet's freezer, is it?
