Meet The Unlikely Hero Who Saved This 5-Year-Old From A Brutal Attack (Video)


A Florida family's pit bull saved a 5-year-old girl who was being attacked by a neighbor's pet Labrador.

According to reports, Remayah Hernandez, 5, tried to pet her neighbor's Labrador while riding her bike when it suddenly went on the attack in the Lake Worth, Florida neighborhood.

"He bit me in the face, and I went to the hospital because I got bitten by the lips," Hernandez said.

Nehemias Gaspar, the owner of the Labrador, said he has no idea why his beloved dog attacked the little girl.

"He was just a great dog, he was a very nice dog," Gaspar said.

Luckily for Hernandez, Trigger, her family's pit bull, was able to come to her rescue, but Trigger killed the Lab.

"I sincerely believe inside of me that my dog is innocent," Gaspar said. "It's very unfortunate what happened, but I'm more worried about the girl, now that my dog is gone."

Still, Hernandez's mother Lucila says she owes her daughter's life to Trigger.

"To me, he’s like a hero. He’s a protective dog," Lucila said. "We taught him to be protective and caring for the family."

Lucila also says her daughter's strength has gotten them through some really scary moments.

"She's a tough cookie," Lucila said. "I think I was crying more than she was!

"This would never have happened to her if he would have just kept his dog where he belongs, in the house or tied up," the mother added.
