Lindman rushed outside to try and help her son only to find someone else was already at the scene.
Brown had come sprinting down the road determined to save Mason who was being attacked by the wild dog.
“As soon as I noticed, I just ran over there without thinking. And I didn’t know how, but I knew I had to get the dog off of the boy,” Brown said.
The pit bull glared at Brown and it could tell he was a bigger threat than Mason. So it charged at Brown.
Mason ran towards his mother and friends not taking for granted the chance to escape.
Brown kept on running away from the wild dog. But when he got to the lawn of his home, He tripped. Soon the pit bull was upon him, tearing his flesh.
Brown tackled the dog pushing its mouth away. The dog got scared and ran away.
Brown survived a few cuts from the dog but he would be okay.
Mason on the other hand was rushed to the hospital where he received treatment and a couple of staples from the emergency procedure.
Jillian called Brown a hero for risking his life and saving her son. If it were not for his quick action, things could have turned out worse.
Jillian Lindman said: “I just wanna give the guy a hug, you know — There’s nothing I could do, but just say ‘thank you.’”
The wild dog was eventually surrendered to Montgomery County Animal Control and the owner issued with a police citation.
Grant Brown’s quick response was able to save Mason’s life. Brown is truly a hero to Mason and all of us.
