NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A 7-year-old girl was hospitalized after she was bitten by a dog in Northwest Miami-Dade.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived at the scene at the 5400 block of Northwest 184th Street, Monday morning.

7Skyforce hovered over the scene, where the child lay on a gurney as rescue crews placed multiple bandages on her head, her foot and her arm.

According to authorities, the child was bitten by the dog multiple times.

A dog was seen near the home but it’s unclear if this was the animal involved in this incident.

An adult was seen accompanying the young girl before she was placed on the helicopter and then again as she was being put inside the helicopter.

7News cameras capture the medical chopper as it landed at the hospital.

The girl’s condition is not known.

7News has reached out to Miami-Dade Animal Control Services to see what steps they will take in regards to the dog that bit the child. They have not responded to 7News’ inquiry.
