Veteran Saves Child from Dog Attack by Hitting It with Christmas Decoration (VIDEO)

A Korean War veteran is being hailed a hero after he saved a ten-year-old girl from a dog attack in Perry Township, Ohio, Sunday.

When Leonard Miller, 88, heard someone pounding on his front door that afternoon, he immediately knew something was wrong, News 5 Cleveland reported.

His 13-year-old neighbor told him the family’s pit bull had gotten hold of her younger sibling and would not let go. With no time to lose, Miller grabbed a plastic nutcracker Christmas decoration from the neighbor’s yard and ran toward the girl’s house. . .

Once inside the house, the Korean War Army combat medic realized the parents were not at home and found the girl lying on the floor, with the dog still viciously attacking her. . .

However, Miller was not about to let the animal hurt the girl any further. He continued to hit the dog with the decoration until it finally let go of her. The veteran then forcefully shouted a command at the animal to keep it from turning on him next.
