A fundraiser has been started in support of a woman who suffered the loss of her kid and was taken to the hospital after a vicious dog attack on Saturday.
A friend of Emily Islas, one of two victims of the attack by four domestic dogs, started the GoFundMe on Monday in the afternoon. According to the website, Islas is still being treated at Portneuf Medical Center’s intensive care unit. Mary Keating, a hospital spokeswoman, reports that Islas’ status is stable.
The attack happened on Sandy Road in Fort Hall at 5:30 on Saturday, according to a statement from the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes. Kellan, Islas’ 7-year-old son, was mauled by four dogs at the family’s residence. Islas sought to shield her kid from additional harm when she realised he had been attacked, but she ended up getting seriously hurt in the process.
“Emily is someone I know, and I know she did everything she could to defend (her son) from that assault. She is an incredible mother and woman who gave everything to try to save her young son, according to the GoFundMe.
Following an emergency transport to Portneuf Medical Center, Kellan was declared deceased.
The GoFundMe describes the wounds Islas received. She suffered “injury to the back of her head, left arm, and her back,” as well as nerve damage and a ruptured artery in her right arm.
The goal of the GoFundMe is to raise $5,000, which will enable Islas to continue caring for her daughter, who according to the fundraiser was not at the house when it was attacked, as she recovers from her wounds.
