ATLANTA – Therapy dogs are now helping a young girl recover from a dog attack at her bus stop.
Logan Braatz, 6, died, and his classmate, Syrai Sanders, 5, was seriously hurt when they were viciously attacked by multiple dogs as they made their way to their bus stop Jan. 17.
Channel 2’s Sophia Choi spoke to Syrai Sanders’ mother Tuesday morning.
She told Choi that Syrai is doing much better, but will likely be in the hospital for another month.
“I’m happy my baby’s still here,” Jeresha Williams said.
She said Syrai is learning to trust dogs again, even petting two golden retrievers at the hospital. Williams says her daughter loves animals. She shared a photo with Choi of Syrai in the hospital with a bandage covering her eye.
“She’s such a prissy little girl. She always says, ‘I’m a princess,’” Williams said.
