FRESNO – A 4-year-old boy is in the ICU after being attacked by a dog.
“He’s very strong and brave,” Cortney Neal said about his son.
Cortney said his son is a typical little boy who loves ice cream and surprises.
On Tuesday, Cortney said a dog got loose in their neighborhood located in Fresno and attacked his son Carson while he was walking with his 15-year-old babysitter and her 7-year-old brother.
“He’s like, ‘the dog was big, dad. The dog was big and black and he dragged me.’ He’s scared of dogs. I think they were trying to run but he froze. He told me he froze. He’s like, ‘I kind of froze, dad,’” Neal said.
The attack was so brutal that the 4-year-old needed stitches in his head, back arm, and two surgeries — including one to repair nerve damage on his face in an area along the jaw line just below the ear.
Carson remains in ICU because of spinal fluid that’s leaking from a small puncture wound on the back of his head.
“I haven’t seen a tear come out of his eye. I think we’ve cried more than him,” Cortney said.
