This is what happens when people are unprepared to face the unexpected.
PINEVILLE, N.C. – A woman is recounting a terrifying and vicious dog attack at a park in Pineville Monday.
Abryana Heggins said she remembers all the thoughts that were rushing through her mind as a huge dog attacked her at a Pineville dog park.
“I just kept thinking ‘What’s happening? Why is this happening? How am I gonna get this dog off of me,'” Heggins said.
She said it all started when a very large dog started attacking a husky in the park.
“At first, he grabbed the husky by the back of its neck and then, grabbed its tail and started shaking its head aggressively,” Heggins said.
She and her friend Jaylen rushed to get their dogs out of the park, but suddenly, she said she felt pressure on her arm.
“I just ended up being dragged across the ground by the dog, and he started shaking and locked onto my arm and there’s people yelling, and she’s yelling and Jaylen is trying to rip the dog off my arm,” Heggins said.
Her friend jumped on top of the dog and fought it until Pineville police arrived.
