A man who tried to stop his pit bull from attacking his daughter, had his private parts ripped apart, rescue workers in New Mexico said.

Now, the dog owner is recovering from serious injuries he received when the pit bull tore part of his genitals when he tried to stop the animal from attacking his daughter.

The 90 pound dog named Stitches, attacked the man’s 8-year-old girl. After hearing his daughter scream, the man saw the dog biting his daughter’s face.

He ran over to the dog, and when he tried pulling it away his genitals was ripped apart.

A spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department said: “When we arrived at the home located near San Pedro and San Antonio NE, the man was bleeding profusely and holding his groin. It was very bad.”

The man was rushed to a hospital with a partial tear of the genitals and severe lacerations after Saturday’s attack. The 8-year-old girl was treated at the scene.

The family told police that they had just moved into the house three days before the attack, having inherited the property from their grandfather.

Animal Control officers removed the animal from the property.
