Successful Surgery for Pit Bull Attack Victim

Posted on: December 21st, 2010       Attorney Thomas Newell

A Dec. 15, 2010 surgery for a pit bull attack victim was deemed a success by the surgeons at Yale-New Haven Hospital. An 8 year-old boy had been visiting with friends of his mother in Hanover PA. On June 1, 2010 he was catching fireflies in a side yard when he was nearly mauled to death by 2 vicious pit bulls.

The PA dog bite victim was hospitalized for a week at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. He underwent multiple operations to his head and ears. The most recent surgery involved opening up his scalp and placing balloons next to his head wound in order to promote a new growth of scalp. There is a great danger of infection and the dog bite victim’s lifestyle will be greatly affected by this latest surgical procedure.
