Would you sacrifice yourself to save your child?


DAYTONA, Fla. - A Flagler County woman was airlifted for medical treatment after five Pit Bulls allegedly attacked her and her child Sunday.

Brandy Bookamer, 27, and her six-year-old daughter were walking near their Daytona North home on Holly Lane Sunday night when the dogs allegedly attacked, according to a release form the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

Bookamer was able to protect her daughter from the dogs by telling her to run home, saving the young child from injury, the release detailed.

Bookamer sustained numerous puncture wounds and lacerations, however the extent of her injuries is unknown at this time, according to the FCSO. Bookamer was taken by ambulance to the Flagler County Airport and then airlifted to Halifax Hospital by Volusia County Sheriff's Office Air One. Bookamer's injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The dogs believed to be involved in the incident were located by Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies at a home. Animal control was called in and took possession of all five of the suspect dogs.

How scary! I would have done the very same thing. I would die for my children.

  • Of course. I know I'd sacrifice myself for my children, and I hope if it ever happened, I'd sacrifice myself for any child.

  • Sad that pit bulls are getting a bad rap again but yes any day I would take a bullet for my babies if I had to... Never a doubt in my mind... Kids haven't lived life yet at least ive lived some of mine.

  • I would absolutely sacrifice myself for my kids. Hell, one of the ways I realized my ex and I weren't going to last was when I was carrying my oldest, who was then about 8 months, down some wet steps and I slipped. I twisted so that he landed on me and didn't get hurt at all, giving myself bruises all up and down my right leg, arm, hip, and lower back. He looked at me and said "Why would you do that?"

    I hope that mother survives and then gets to beat the hell out of the pit bull owners. It's assholes like that that make people freak out over my pit - who, btw, is such a wuss that he gets scared of a baby opossum that wanders near him.
