Six-year-old in critical condition after pit bull attack in front of Westwood home

The family of the 6-year-old girl mauled by two pit bulls in front of a Westwood home Wednesday has identified her as Zainabou Drame.

Zainabou is in critical condition at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with massive facial injuries.

The child was playing outside with her brother in the 2900 block of Aquadale Lane at about 6:15 p.m. when the attack happened. Her mother was inside their home.

When police arrived at the scene, they saw the two pit bulls mauling the girl. As officers got out of their cruiser and approached, the dogs turned toward them. Both dogs were shot and killed.

Zainabou was immediately taken into emergency surgery and spent hours in the operating room.

Terrie Martin, a neighbor who was nearby during the attack, said she witnessed the dogs biting the girl. She said she was alerted to the attack after hearing a loud scream.
