Man Escapes Gruesome Pitbull Attack by Scaling Fence in San Francisco

San Francisco, California – A man in San Francisco narrowly escaped a life-threatening attack by two pit bulls while walking home from the gym on Memorial Day weekend. The vicious incident left him with 30 stitches and required him to undergo surgery at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.

Pablo Rocha recounted the terrifying experience of being taken down by the pit bulls, stating that he believed he was going to die during the attack. Despite his ordeal, Rocha managed to survive by scaling a tall fence to escape the aggressive dogs. He described the noise of his bicep muscle being stretched during the attack, highlighting the intensity of the situation.

After the attack, Rocha was dismayed to find that while over 20 cars stopped during the incident, no one came to his aid. Additionally, the majority of the 911 calls made during the attack incorrectly reported Rocha as a burglary suspect as he attempted to flee from the pit bulls by climbing the fence.

Following the attack, two suspects were arrested by the authorities. One of the suspects, Hilary Flynn, was charged with failure to control a dangerous dog, resisting arrest, and false impersonation. The other suspect, Jesse Ali, faced charges of resisting arrest, as well as harboring, concealing, or aiding another person who had committed a felony.

As a result of the attack, the two pit bulls involved were euthanized by San Francisco Animal Control. Despite the physical and emotional trauma he endured, Rocha is focused on his recovery and grateful to have survived the harrowing experience. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible pet ownership and the need to ensure public safety when it comes to aggressive animals.

In the aftermath of the attack, Rocha’s resilience and survival instinct have inspired many, shedding light on the importance of community awareness and support in times of crisis. The incident has sparked conversations about animal control measures and public safety protocols to prevent similar attacks in the future.
