What actually happened

In the video, the boy is floored as the pit bull charges on him, while a man and a woman watch from far but do not intervene. Kicking furiously, the boy rolls around the ground, trying to get the dog off him.

Someone throws water to distract the dog, and the boy manages to get up and run to safety with the dog still following him. He is then clutching onto a door trying to get in when street dogs come charging at the pit bull and help the boy get inside the house.
