A young pit bull escaped from his kennel and attacked an 8-year-old boy at his aunt’s home in Indio around 3 p.m. Monday, an official said.

“This dog got out of his kennel or crate somehow, and ran right at the child and attacked him,” said John Welsh, public information officer at the services. Riverside County Animal Care.

The boy’s grandmother and a second woman, also a relative, fought the 2-year-old dog against the child and put him in a backyard. The attack happened in the 47-000 block of Calle Diamante.

The boy, who suffered facial injuries, was driven by his father to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Center in Indio, and from there he was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, said Welsh. Loma Linda spokeswoman Lisa Aubry said Monday evening that the young patient was discharged in stable condition earlier in the day.
