Two young children's faces mauled by pit bull in minivan attack

LANCASTER, Pa. – Two young children are recovering after a pit pull escaped its owners' yard in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, jumped into their family's minivan and attacked them while they were strapped inside their car seats.

"The dog was not stopping, it was a vicious dog. That dog was the devil," says witness Marsha Jones.

Jones ran to a nearby business to ask for help. Tom Grab was inside, and sprang into action.

He was able to grab the dog and pull it off the children so the mother could drive away.

The 2-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy both suffered serious facial injuries.

The dog is now in quarantine.
