BIG SPRING TX - A PIT BULL "SOMEHOW" GOT LOOSE AND ATTACKED A 9-YEAR-OLD GIRL PLAYING OUTSIDE - HER BEST FRIEND DISTRACTED THE PIT BY HITTING IT WITH HER SCOOTER


A girl was left fighting for her life after being attacked by a PIT BULL in Big Spring Tuesday night.


9-year old K'Lyn Gillespie is left with a huge hole near her right shoulder after the dog grabbed her and tried to drag her.
"I just turned around for a second and it got me," dog bite victim K'Lyn Gillespie said.
"I just remember screaming God please, please, we've been through so much with her. Please, please make this ok," K'Lyn's mother Jennifer Gillespie said.
K'Lyn has been a fighter her whole life, born premature at only two pounds, her mother says she's a tough cookie.
"K'Lyn actually dug her bare feet into the sidewalk curb to keep from being drug in," Jennifer Gillespie said.
K'Lyn's life was saved by her 11-year-old best friend, Autumn Miller. Miller was able to distract the dog by hitting it with her scooter just long enough for K'Lyn to run away.
"I knew I wouldn't forget this for the rest of my life. I just remember saving her," Hero Autumn Miller said.
The Big Spring Police Department says the dog has been euthanized and sent to Austin to get tested for rabies. Officials believe the test will come back negative.

Yes, the rabies test will come back negative. Pit bulls are almost never rabid, but attack anyway.
