A man saved a one-year-old boy and her sister from being dog food after a vicious pit bull attacked the children late Tuesday.

Chaverim of Rockland volunteer Moshe Lefkovits took matters into his own hands when he rushed to help the boy, who was being held by his sister, from the menacing jaws of the canine, said FOX News.

The sister tried to free his baby brother, but the pit bull managed to bite on his clothing. Lefkovits used a knife to cut the infant's clothing and saved them from what could have been a gruesome animal attack.

Fox News added that more than 20 volunteers responded to the scene after Lefkovits called for help.

The baby sustained bruises after being bounced back and forth, while his sister was unharmed and was not bitten, according to Clarion News.

Bystander Aharon ben Toiba suffered a bite wound to his hand and arm before Chaverim volunteers could subdue the dog. He was rushed to a local hospital for surgery.

The Spring Valley Police Department posted the photo of pit bull on their Facebook page and is asking for any information about the dog's owners.

The pit bull is currently at the Hi Tor Animal Shelter, the post added.
