CHICAGO (WLS/CNN) - A Chicago teen is being hailed for his bravery after he used a broom to scare off a dog that went after his 7-year-old cousin.

The incident which occurred in the Englewood neighborhood Monday, was caught on surveillance camera.

The relentless dog attack initially seemed unending until Jamal Anderson stepped in to help his cousin Karl Kelly.

“The dog tried to bite me,” said Karl, a fifth grader.

As Karl and his relatives were about to leave for school, the dog which may have been a pit bull, latched onto his backpack.

The 50-pound first-grader tried his best to escape.

“I just kept hearing the three kids yelling. They’re all just yelling, screaming, crying but they didn’t know what to do because they’re still young,” said 13-year-old Jamal.

The dog had Karl cornered, but that’s when Jamal with broom in hand, came to his cousin’s aid.

A single swing was all it took to rescue Karl.
