On the night of July 24, a 15-month-old girl in Sedgwick, Kansas required transport to Wesley Medical Center, where she was listed in critical but stable condition from the personal injuries she suffered after a dog bit her in the face, according to Newton Fire/EMS Battalion Chief Jerry Conyers.
Conyers said that at approximately 6:30 p.m., an ambulance crew was dispatched to the scene, where a Labrador, possibly the family pet, had bitten the girl.
The ambulance crew, which was from Sedgwick, was met by Newton EMS after the initial crew requested advanced life support. The Newton EMS crew took the girl to Wichita.
The name of the victim has not yet been released.
According to Conyers, the incident would likely be investigated by local law enforcement as is the case with most dog bite incidents.
