An afternoon on the playground for students in an Oklahoma elementary school turned into a terrifying encounter after a dog came in through an open gate and attacked several of them, officials said. The Oklahoma City Public Schools said on Twitter that several students were bitten at the Fillmore Elementary School when the dog entered the playground area. Five students were transported to the hospital, and seven others were taken by their parents, FOX25 reported. None of the injuries were deemed critical. The children suffered superficial dog bites, while some had escape injuries as they attempted to run away, officials said. Dog came on and started to attack some of the kids, and of course kids began to scream and panic, which excites the dog and scared the dog even more,” Capt. David Macy with the Oklahoma City Fire Department told FOX25. “His natural instinct was to keep biting and go after the kids.” The dog, a pitbull mix, was able to get inside the school, but a teacher tackled him before he reached any classrooms. “I’m used to being able to do what needs to be done,” Special Ed teacher Lee Hughes told FOX25. “It just worked out real well.”
