BAYTOWN, Texas -

A child was flown to a hospital after she was bitten by two dogs, police said.

Baytown police said the incident happened in the 4900 block of St. Andrews about 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Detectives said the 13-year-old girl went to a friend's house and was bitten by two pit bulls.

The dogs' owner said the girl normally calls before she comes over so they can put the dog in a secure area, but she came over unexpectedly this time. The girl was attacked when she opened the gate to the home, the dogs' owner said.
