READING TOWNSHIP MI - A MAN WAS LIFE FLIGHTED TO ST. VINCENT'S TRAUMA IN TOLEDO AFTER A DOG ATTACK

A Life Flight pilot prepares the cab of the helicopter for transport as flight nurses make their way towards an awaiting Reading Emergency Unit ambulance.

A Reading-area man is in serious condition after a dog attack caused him to be life-flighted to a trauma center late Wednesday night.
Shortly after 11 p.m., Reading Emergency Unit was dispatched to a residence on Gilmore Road, just north of Dimmers Road.
Paramedics arrived on scene shortly after and began triaging the man's wounds, which they deemed severe enough to request helicopter transport to a trauma center.
The Reading Community Fire Department was dispatched to set up a safe landing zone for the incoming bird.
A Life Flight crew responded from Wauseon, Ohio, and landed on a narrow strip of Gilmore Road, close to the scene.
The man was transported to St. Vincent's Trauma Center in Toledo, Ohio.
All crews cleared the scene shortly before midnight. The status of the dog remains unknown.

The status of the dog, and the breed of the dog remain unknown, because there's a media bias to protect the sacred breed known as pit bull.

If you need to go to the hospital after a "dog bite", it's a pit bull.

If you need to be airlifted to the hospital after a "dog bite", it's a pit bull.

If you're airlifted to a trauma center in serious condition after a "dog bite", it's a pit bull.

If your "dog bite" makes the news, it's a pit bull.

If your "dog bite" requires officers to shoot the attacking dog dead, it's a pit bull.

Because we don't know the status of dog, I can fill in the blanks however I want.

I think pits are the official life-flight dogs.
