Boy rescued from pitbull dog attack

A seven year old boy has been rescued from an attack by a pitbull dog after his screams were heard by a man walking by.

Lawal Alhadi broke down the door to the flat, where Jack Wellstead was being attacked, and fought off the animal after it had bitten the child more than 100 times.

Mr Alhadi said going to help was an instinctive decision.
