Retired Firefighter Saves Boy from Pit Bull Attack

Paul Gedgaudas, a Brockton, Massachusetts, retired firefighter, saved a 13-year old boy from a Pit Bull attack on Wednesday afternoon. Gedgaudas himself was injured when the dog turned and sunk its teeth into his wrist.

“I heard the cars honking at first, and then I heard the screams,” said Gedgaudas. “I’m figuring maybe there was a fight going on from the kids getting out of school.”

But, then he saw a Pit Bull dragging a child down the street by his ankle and the dog was not letting go. “He dragged him from my fence to the driveway,” said Gedgaudas.

The veteran firefighter said he acted instinctually and put on a pair of leather work gloves as he ran down his driveway, where he grabbed the Pit Bull by the collar to yank him away from the boy. The dog then whipped around and sank its teeth into Gedgaudas’ wrist.
