Cathedral City Girl Attacked By Dogs

CREATED Aug. 3, 2012


CATHEDRAL CITY-- A 6-year-old girl is recovering, after being attacked by dogs in Cathedral City on Friday afternoon.

Crystal Lopez says it was a traumatizing day for her and her daughter Laci. It all started as a normal day. Laci's parents drove her to the Agua Caliente School in Cathedral City, and left. But Laci realized she had forgotten something at home, so she walked off school premises, and headed back toward her house. That's when she was attacked by two dogs. A concerned parent driving by stopped to help Laci. She was taken home and rushed to the hospital with minor injuries.

A Spokesperson for the Palm Springs Unified School District says no teacher had seen Laci come in to school, so they hadn't known she'd left.
