ARMY VET MAULED BY PIT BULL NEEDS YOUR HELP!!
On Sunday, January 16, 2022, Fidel Joshua was viciously attacked and mauled by a rogue pit bull while working as a Security Guard, employed by the San Francisco Public Library. As he attempted to perform a life saving procedure, administering NARCAN (NARCAN is a drug used to save the life of a person who has overdosed on drugs) to an unresponsive person in the library, possibly overdosed on an opiate, the pit bull of the unresponsive owner attacked him.
After the attack Fidel’s first words were “I’m really glad it was me and not someone else” which brought tears to the eyes of coworkers. Those around who knew Fidel weren’t surprised by his remarks.
The incident which was covered by the news has gone viral on social media, video shows the pit bull attacking and gnawing through Fidel’s flesh and bones dragging and swinging to the floor of the library as Fidel fought for his life.
The disturbing attack was captured by video.
Fidel sustained multiple injuries which require multiple surgeries; right quadriceps muscle completely torn from the knee and torn meniscus, right shoulder completely torn rotator cuff and other tears (doctor recommends total r shoulder replacement), left forearm nerve damage and tendon repair, r hand bitten possible tendon tear and therapy for PTSD.
