Good Samaritan Saves 6-Year-Old Boy From Vicious Raccoon Attack
Danny Walls jumped into action when he saw Aryan Gavali under attack in New Jersey.
A little boy is lucky to be alive after a vicious attack by a 20-pound raccoon.
Six-year-old Aryan Gavali needed nine stiches after suffering deep cuts to his face and eyes.
The little boy was walking to school with his mother in Bergen County, New Jersey on Wednesday morning when the raccoon suddenly charged at the boy and jumped on his back. The animal sank its claws into his face.
Thankfully, a good Samaritan saw the attack and rushed to help.
Danny Walls grabbed an extension pole used for painting and beat the raccoon to save Aryan.
“He clawed into the kid's face," Walls said. "He was biting the kid's face. I killed the raccoon. The kid jumped up, he was screaming, he was crying. There was blood all over the place.”
Walls added: “I was so emotional because I imagined that was my son at that point in time.”
The raccoon was taken by animal control and is being tested for rabies.
