In the United States, a woman and her two children aged two and four were seriously injured by a pit bull. The mother of the family, however, managed to immobilize the animal while waiting for help from the emergency services.
That’s what we call a super mom. In the United States, in the state of South Carolina, a mother by the name of Bethany Hastings wanted to do a good deed by accompanying an elderly person to her home using her golf cart. But it almost ended in tragedy. As she and her two children aged two and four passed through the old lady’s gate, the latter’s dog, totally enraged, jumped on them to attack them.
The canine, a pit bull, threw himself directly on the cart. “He first threw himself on my brother, then he attacked me before attacking my mother”Lainey told a local newspaper. Completely shocked, the mother of the family nevertheless had a superheroine reaction : the latter succeeded in snatching the dog from her children by keeping it on the ground for more than fifteen minutes, which she characterized as “terrifying” until help arrives.

“I had no choice. If I had let go, he would have bitten us to death“, said Bethany Hastings. It must be said that the latter and her two children were all hospitalized. “The little family was bitten several times by the dog, in the face and on several parts of their bodies. The mother and her children were bleeding profusely”, said the representative of the hospital that treated them. “Doctors had never seen a dog attack that did so much damage“, added the police. While the pit bull was euthanized, the heroic mother of the family will have to undergo several operations during the year in order to find her face in a more or less normal state.
