Davie boy recovering from dog attack

A 10-year-old South Florida boy is in intensive care after two rottweilers attacked him.

Christen Franco had to undergo about seven hours of surgery. He was attacked when he went into his neighbor's backyard trying to find a lost baseball.

Christian was bitten repeatedly. "[He] came out, and he had blood on his face," describes his grandfather.

Animal control in Davie cited the owners of the dog for having no license, and their pets were not vaccinated.

Doctors are currently watching Christian very closely for any signs of internal bleeding or infection.
