Danger can strike anywhere and anytime. Some areas seem more dangerous than others, but still, something terrible can really happen anywhere.
While some areas can have fairly obvious dangers marked by warning signs, the safety of most places depends on who or what is living there.
Two joggers were unfortunate enough to learn just how hostile a seemingly innocent place can be. This is their story.
The joggers are 20-year-old Rebekah Forgey and 19-year-old Isabella George.
Their jog took them to this field.
They were attacked by 4 pit bulls.
The two joggers and the dogs’ owner struggled with them for half an hour while they kept biting.
But suddenly, the dogs scattered.
A woman happened to be driving her truck up to the scene and that scared them off. She then rushed the victims to safety.
But, the cousins were still very badly injured.
George received deep bites all over her body but was released and recovered at home.
The dogs ripped off 75% of Forgey’s scalp and tore some of the muscle from her leg.
She had to stay in intensive care.
Police later found the 4 dogs and shot them dead.
The local sheriff’s department also called for charges against their owner, who as the police suspected was starving them.
Both of the cousins have had their wounds healed in the months since.
Forgey spent months in physical therapy but is now reporting that things are getting better.
