A teenager survived a savage attack by two dogs that left him with 36 bites Sunday night.
Ryan Griffith, 17, was mauled as he cut through Mount Tabor Heights, St John, on his way home to nearby Claybury about 7:30 p.m.
The dogs, two Akitas, charged him,?Griffith said, backed him into the bushes and began biting him.
“I was really frightened and in pain because the dog was biting into my foot and I didn’t know what to do. I was in real pain. I was praying somebody would pass. I was saying if nobody didn’t come along, I would’ve died out there,” a relieved Griffith told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
His brother, Joseph Griffith, passed on a bicycle, heard Ryan shouting and found him in the bushes with the dogs still on the attack, Ryan’s father, Darrell Griffith, said.
“I was considering if somebody would find me and see the dogs biting me,” a heavily bandaged Ryan interjected.
By the time his family took him to the doctor, Ryan had bites to his legs, arms and head and was unable to walk without help.
