Boy attacked by two dogs escapes with minor injuries

STANTON - A young boy in Stanton was able to walk away with non life threatening injuries after being attacked by two dogs while taking out the trash.

David Taylor, 7, and his cousin Josiah Hall, 9, were taking out the trash when the two dogs started chasing them. Josiah was able to make it to the house where he told his father, Albert Hall, who was mopping the kitchen floor, “They got him.”
