The 14-month old was walking with his mother and father on Chestnut Street near Locust Street when a pit bull bit the child’s face, just before 3:30pm.
The father quickly got what was described as a "blue-nosed pit bull" off the child. The father stated he threw the dog across the street while the mother escaped with the child up the road.
The child was rushed to Butler Memorial Hospital and, due to the severity of her injuries, was then flown to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for further treatment.
