No mother ever imagines that when they let their child outside to play, they will end up in the hospital with several months of reconstructive surgery ahead. The neighbor boy’s father, who is also the owner of the dog, had him on a chain, but obviously, the dog was not raised to be friendly and playful with children. According to a news report, this tragedy has Chance still in Children’s Mercy Hospital; he has lost his left ear along with portions of his scalp and to clear his upper airway, he now has a tracheostomy.
Freinds and family have set up a GoFundMe page for the future surgeries that Chance will need, and all donations are now being accepted.
After the attack was discovered, the dog’s owner ran to the Orozco’s home to tell them that Chance had been hurt, and Chance’s grandmother immediately ran to find the boy in this horrific condition. She rushed him to Emergency, and he was immediately flown to Children’s Mercy Hospital.
Chance’s father says that no one knows how this maul started, but the highway patrol who answered the call knew the attack had lasted about 20 minutes. There is no ongoing investigation. It was such an unfortunate incident. A personal injury lawsuit could be taking place in the near future.
