Monday, May 30, 2011 - A 50-year-old man had to be rushed into emergency surgery and he remains in serious condition, and his daughter, age 18, was also bitten and was treated and released. They are parishioners at First White Plains Seventh Day Adventists Church and were passing out church flyers on Juniper Hill Road on Saturday, May 28. They were walking up a driveway shared by several homes when the unleashed Pit Bulls charged at them. One dog knocked the man down and dragged him behind some bushes. The daughter who was being attacked by the second broke free and ran for help, then that dog turned and began attacking her father also. The man fianlly crawled on top a station wagon to escape the animals. A neighbor called police a 5:12 pm.
