WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – A mother and her two children were injured in an attack involving their two pit bull dogs.

Winter Garden police said they responded to East Maple Street early Friday and found the victims with non-life-threatening injuries.

A neighbor told News 6 he was driving to work when he saw the woman screaming for help.

The neighbor said he used a leaf blower to fight off the dogs and get the mother and children to safety.

The neighbor said one child suffered bites to his neck and the woman had bite and scratch marks on her chest.

Orange County Animal Services took custody of the dogs.

It’s not known what prompted the attack or if the pets will be euthanized.
