2-Year-Old Hospitalized After Dog Bite

Posted on Oct 8, 2010 2:50pm PDT

This week, it has been reported that a boy from Trenton, Ohio is currently in Children's Hospital after suffering a dog bite on Sunday evening.

According to local police, the two-year-old boy had been playing with the family dog when the pet suddenly bit him. The dog is a German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix.

Police believe that while the child was playing with the dog, he may have been too close to the dog's face. The two-year-old had to be airlifted to the hospital and is expected to recover from his injuries.

Did you know that according to the Center for Disease Control, 4.5 million Americans get bit by dogs each and every year? Additionally, one out of five dog bites requires medical attention and the most frequently attacked demographic are children between the ages of 5 to 9 years.
