A 14-year-old boy, Kanye Kennedy, was walking through Harpurhey in Manchester, England when he was viciously attacked by a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. The dog nearly took off his arm and also severely injured a woman who came to the boy’s rescue. Both victims were saved when a neighbor killed the dog.
The 14-year-old boy says he was walking through town when the dog charged at him and began attacking. The dog grabbed hold of the boy’s arm and came very close to ripping the limb right off the helpless boy. Zoe Rutledge, a 27-year-old full-time caretaker, witnessed the attack and intervened to save the boy. The dog turned on her, severely injuring her arm. The attack continued until 41-year-old Neil Twigg grabbed a carving knife from his kitchen and stabbed the vicious dog to death.
Both the boy and woman are thankful towards Neil for saving their lives. The boy is expected to recover from his injuries, and Zoe hopes to regain feeling in her arm. If Zoe’s injuries fail to heal, she will be unable to care for her mother, requiring the family to hire full-time care.
