Thursday in La Mesa, two rottweilers escaped from their yard and attacked a family walking on the sidewalk. The woman was walking Waite Drive with her 2-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter when they were attacked by the vicious dogs. According to Patch News, “The mother tried to pull the stroller and her son away from the dogs, but one of the dogs jumped on her, knocked her to the ground and began to bite her, while the other dog continued to attack her child.” The daughter was not attacked, however, the mother and son were taken to the hospital with injuries. The son was bitten on his head, face and arm. The woman was bitten on her arm and is expected to undergo surgery.
