Austin Foust, 7, is still recovering at UT Medical Center after being attacked by a pit bull Monday night. On Tuesday, Foust had a special visitor from a Maryville boy who was mauled by a pit bull last year.
Eight-year-old Sport Kim says he wanted to bring Foust a card, and let him know he's going to be okay. Since Sport's attack in May 2013, his mom Jennifer says they've actually visited several children who are going through the same thing.
Sport was seven when he was attacked by his aunt's dog. His mom and sister Danica were there when it happened.
"My mom was screaming," Sport said.
"His head was inside the jaws of this animal," Jennifer said.
"I was like oh God please don't die, please don't die. I love you," Danica said.
"It was close to my eye, really close," Sport said.
"The dog wouldn't let go. My husband had to immediately jump on the dog and choke him," Jennifer said.
After the dog passed out, they were finally able to get Sport free and rush him to the hospital for surgery.
"The whole car was bloody and my mom had to run a red light," Sport said.
"He had a big hole in his face. I thought it got his eye because it was like really really close to his eye. I thought he'd never see again," Danica said.
"The most damage he got was nerve damage. So by the end of the day, his face will droop down," Jennifer said.
"Danica and Sport, their whole personality just changed, that's the hardest part."
Jennifer now runs a Twitter account called "Pits Aren't Pets." She says she isn't against dogs, in fact the family has a great dane, but she says she wants to warn people about the dangers of pit bulls.
"I have a dog, I get it, I love animals. Sport's biggest thing is he loves animals. But you have to be cautious. You have to know what your breed can do and what it’s capable of, and protect children."
