Moment police struggle to restrain vicious dog after it bites child in front of stunned onlookers
A video captures the moment police struggle to restrain a vicious dog after it bites a child in front of onlookers in the latest canine attack.
A 13-year-old boy was bitten by a dog at a bus stop around 4.55pm on Thursday on Burdett Road, Tower Hamlets, London.
The video then pans to the injured child who is on the ground at the bus stop and as he is being attended to by officers. The man filming the video is heard saying: ‘It bit the poor kid, look.’
Standing completely still, the video shows the moment that the dog is captured by the police as the control pole loops around its neck.
Once it is caught, the dog attempts to fight back and resists with great force against the member of police.
Another officer stands by at the ready with a fire extinguisher in hand.
The crowds are eventually directed further away from the incident as the ambulance arrives to see to the boy.
The young boy was reported to have been taken to hospital for his treatment, and thankfully his injuries are not life-threatening.
