Grant Brown, who at the time was 19, heard screams from down the street after the boy was attacked by a pitbull in Conroe, Texas.

As explained in the video above, Brown ran down to help get the dog off of the boy, who later had to get staples on his head to treat bites and had bruises on his face.

The dog eventually chased Brown down the street as the boy ran inside his house, and Brown later had to get treated for cuts on his hand.

Later on, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, City of Conroe and Conroe Police Department recognized Brown for his act of heroism.
