When Grant Brown heard screams coming from his street, the Texas teen ran to help. Outside his family’s home in Conroe, the 19-year-old saw a child being attacked by a dog and didn’t hesitate to get involved.
Video footage shows the dog jumping onto six-year-old Mason Lindeman, knocking him down, but Brown ran over to distract the animal so the boy could escape. He says, “I was just focused on how I could get the dog away from the kid.”
Mason got away thanks to Brown and was taken to the hospital and treated for a head laceration, but he’s expected to be just fine. The dog left the teen with some cuts on his hands, but his quick actions may have saved that child’s life.
