GOOSE CREEK, SC -

A 6-year-old girl remains in the hospital 2 days after she was attacked by 2 dogs this past weekend.

Kayla Smith suffered severe injury to her head on Sunday and was in surgery Monday so doctors at Childrens Hospital at  MUSC could reattach her scalp.

Her dad broke down in tears when interviewed by WCBD-TV and explained what happened.

"They drug her to the other side of the yard. One had her foot, one had her head. They got up and she was covered in blood," Edward Smith said, his voice breaking and tears flowing. 

The neighbor, owner of the dogs, heard her screaming and helped rescue her away from the animals.

Edward Smith also said the family lacks health insurance for the little girl.

Now, a fund has been set up on a website where folks can donate to help pay for the medical expenses.

"She is currently undergoing the treatment for reattatching the scalp and plastic surgery. The family is asking for any help with the expensive medical bills, as the family does not have any medical insurance," said parents Tanya and Edward Smith.

"We would like to say thank you and please keep Kayla in your prayers."

Berkeley County Animal Control said they responded to the scene of the attack and see no violation of the animal control ordinance and therefore no charges will be made.
