HOUSTON – The 2-year-old who was attacked and nearly killed by a pit bull last month underwent another surgery Monday morning.

Chelsi Camp, 23, was pet sitting the dog for her boyfriend when it suddenly attacked her daughter in their League City apartment. The dog bit Camp as she tried to get it away from Kenzi.

The pit bull had the victims cornered in a bathroom when police arrived. An officer shot the dog and it was later euthanized.

Kenzi was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital with severe injuries to her face and head. The toddler underwent a seven-hour surgery and was in ICU for three days, according to relatives.

Kenzi is out of ICU and doing well, but she faces a long road to recovery.

Camp is by her daughter’s side at the hospital as she recovers from injuries on her hands and arms.

Friends, family and total strangers are raising money to help with the growing pile of medical bills.

A fund has been set up online if you’d like to make a donation.

A fundraiser will also be held Friday night at The Man Cave Cigar Lounge in League City.
