Nicholas Quincy Abram Garvey, an 8-year-old boy, is at Broward General Medical Center recovering from his Deerfield Beach dog bite injuries he sustained when he was attacked by a pit bull-like canine this weekend. His mother says that he has approximately 30 inches of stitches on his body, including on his side, leg, ankle, and eyebrow.

Garvey was bitten multiple times. The Broward County dog attack took at around 6:40pm. While he and two friends were riding his bikes down a block. That is when the dog ran out of a yard and knocked him down.

Garvey’s two friends ran for help. Their grandmother, Sharon Haynes, ran out to rescue him. She used a chair to beat the dog away while she pulled Garvey into her home.

The family of Robert J. Klatch has filed a Florida wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of the pit bull that attacked him on February 11, 2009. Klatch, an 83-year-old Port St. Lucie man, died more than two months after the injury accident.

According to the St. Lucie County wrongful death complaint, Klatch was riding in a golf cart in the Cascades when a pit bull named Buddy, owned by Jane and Harvey Cutler, attacked his shih tzu, who was running next to to him. Buddy reportedly was not leashed and was “running loose” at the time.

Buddy then attacked Klatch, who had been thrown from the cart and was trying to save his dog. He died on April 21, 2009 from injuries he sustained during the Florida dog attack and fall accident.
