HOUSTON -- A 2-year-old League City girl who was mauled by a pit bull earlier this week met the two officers who rushed to her aid, and the 911 dispatcher who took the call Thursday.

Police said Chelsi Camp, 23, was pet sitting the dog for her boyfriend Monday when the animal suddenly attacked the toddler at the Avana at South Shore apartments in the 2800 block of E. League City Parkway.

The dog bit Camp as she tried to get it away from her child and she called 911. Police say the dog had the victims cornered in a bathroom when an officer arrived.

The officer shot the dog once to stop the attack.  

Police said Camp’s daughter was airlifted to the hospital Monday morning. The child was reported in good condition Thursday at Memorial Hermann with injuries on her hands and arms.

The dog was still alive after the officer shot it so it was euthanized by animal control officers.
