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.
