Pitbull

PRETORIA - Three children are in a critical condition at the Kalafong Hospital in Atteridgeville after being attacked by pit bulls on Sunday.

The dogs were apparently left unleashed by their owner and attacked the children who were playing in the streets.

Reports involving a fourth child have not yet been confirmed.

Portia Nakedi says her six-year-old son has undergone surgery on his spine while his liver was damaged during the attack.

She says all she wants is her child to live.

Eyewitness News understands that two more children are in intensive care at the same hospital where they too are undergoing operations.
