The dog latched on to the seven-year-old girl’s leg with its teeth and refuses to let go for almost two minutes, horrifying CCTV video footage shows
A man holding a shopping bag rushes to their aid but appears to be trying to kick the dog as Jazmin struggles against the hound.
More people rush over when they realise what is happening, with one person desperately trying to pull the dog backwards by its collar.
Soon there are more than five people trying to pull the pitbull off the girl, as one pedestrian grabs the dog by its back legs.
But the vicious dog refuses to loosen its grip on the girl as her leg remains tightly fixed in the animal’s jaw.
After almost two minutes, they finally manage to free the young girl and the hound quickly runs away through the crowds.
The dog caused an exposed fracture in one of the girl’s legs, but rapid surgical intervention meant she did not lose her leg.

Jazmin’s aunt said: ‘She is sedated and on medication. The doctors said she has a hip tear and that it is a long process [to heal].
‘My niece was shocked like my sister-in-law, both need a psychologist to attend to them. The baby does not want to eat, she is angry, she cries.’
The relatives have claimed that they had already identified the owner, who allegedly did not admit that the vicious dog belonged to him.
The aunt added: ‘He came yesterday and said that that was not his dog. But later we found out that he had abandoned the dog in the field because the dog had bitten my niece and he also wanted to sell the dog.
‘We need him to come and face this and do justice.’
