VIDEO: Cincinnati Officers Rescue 6-year-old girl

Cincinnati police dash cam video shows, for the first time, exactly what happened and what police saw when officers were on the scene of a vicious pit bull attack that put 6-year-old Zaniabou Drame in Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Drame's grandfather Leslie McElrath Jr. told WLWT News 5 she is still in critical but stable condition and sedated. McElrath said she is on a feeding tube and doctors want her body to start healing before they start surgery.

Cincinnati police officer Kyle Strunk was one of four officers first on the scene from District 3.

"The image I will never get out of my head which was the child's head was in the mouth of the brown dog and he was thrashing his head back and forth," Strunk said.

A nine-year veteran with Cincinnati police, Strunk said this is unfortunately part of the job sometimes.

"This was one-of-a-kind and I hope I never have to see it again, it was by far the worst thing I've ever seen as a police officer," Strunk said.
