Russell Hill is being called a hero, after rescuing a 13 year-old boy from being attacked by 2 pittbulls, on the afternoon of Sunday November 2nd, 2014.  While working at his business, Russell Hill heard cries coming from outside. When he ran outside, he witnessed a young boy, viciously being attacked by two pittbulls. One dog pulling on each leg of the child.  Without a second thought, Russell Hill immediately pulled  the boy away from the vicious pittbulls,  and instantly the dogs turned on him and started to attack him. Russell was defenseless  and suffered tremendous injuries from both dogs attacking him. Russell Hill and the young boy were  transported to seperate hospitals.The young boy was sent home 1 day later with bites to his lower leg. Due to the severity of the attack, Russell Hill is currently at Methodist IU undergoing numerous surgeries and is facing at a long recovery with physical therapy. Mr. Hill was self-employed and without health insurance. He is accumalating medical expenses daily.  Due to his current circumstances, and lack of health insurance the Hill family is seeking financial assistance to help cover the cost of treatment. Any donation is appreciated.

Both WTHR Channel 13 and FOX 59 have reported on Mr. Hill's bravery.

Greetings, I see open enrollment for affordable care is on again - since there's no discrimination against pre-existing conditions can you get insurance now to cover your remaining care? I realize there's still a lot to cover before now, but please pursue this option. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152638324366144&id=54444461143

I put this on my Facebook page. When a vicious dog needs 'saving' tens of thousands of dollars show up overnight while the victims have bake sales and blood drives. This needs to change. Our streets should be safe from vicious animals. I hope the owner of the dogs is found and a civil suit brought against them.

A true hero, selfless and unflinching. Those of us with children would hope that should our OWN children ever (sadly) be in need of rescue, they would be blessed by a decent human being like you coming to their aid. Thank you so much. Get well soon!

I have donated...and have asked a friend named Amy Price to contact you. Half of Amy's leg was mauled off in a pit bull attack. The homeowner's insurance had to pay medical expenses, and pain and suffering. You are truly a hero!!!!
