A 13-year-old New Jersey boy was killed and another seriously hurt by a huge bullmastiff that escaped its Paterson home and mauled the children as they were walking home from school, authorities said.
The kids ran in different directions and got separated during the Friday afternoon attack at Crosby and Rossiter avenues, Paterson police said. But only one made it to safety.
The surviving teen was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center for a bite to his arm, family lawyer Adam Rothenberg said.
“It’s a horrendous situation,” Rothenberg told The Post. “My client fled for his life.”
Of course it was a horrible thing; I just find it interesting how quickly a lawyer appeared on the scene to “represent” the boy who was bitten. I wonder who beat Mr. Rothenberg to the dead boy’s family?
