Here’s a harrowing video that shows how sometimes an innocent situation can go bad and how everyday citizens can become heroes, all in the blink of an eye.
In the video, a 6-year-old Mason Lindeman gets attacked by a pitbull while playing outside his house. The helpless boy becomes prey to this dog and screams. 19-year-old Grant Brown hears the scream and runs right into the path of danger to gets the dog’s attention. Upon seeing this, the animal leaves Mason alone and runs after Grant.
When the dog chases after Grant, Mason runs to his mother, Jillian, and safety. Unfortunately, Grant lost his shoe and fell down while he was running away and so he was also attacked by the dog but managed to escape without serious injury.
And here’s something that won’t come as a surprise: Grant had just enlisted in the Army National Guard prior to this event.
We all praise the bravery of Mason and thank him for his service to the neighborhood and his country. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
