Heroes Include a Have-a-Go Granny on a Mobility Scooter

In September 2015 at the Liverpool City Centre in England, a dog viciously attacked a man, who survived. The man tried to climb on top of a car bonnet (American “hood”) to get away from the dog. Some people came to the man’s aid, including a female old-age pensioner on a mobility scooter who sprayed water in the dog’s face. A witness said, “A man managed to get the dog off him with a stick. I thought he was going to kill the dog in the street.” The dog died from injuries it incurred as people tried to stop the attack. The dog’s victim was hospitalized, but his injuries were described as non-life-threatening. A police spokesperson said, “The full circumstances are unclear at this time and officers are working to piece together the events of this incident.”
