Nicky Henderson, 13, was attacked by his friend's American bulldog in Edinburgh which nearly ripped off his arm.
A 13-year-old boy revealed how he almost lost his arm when a dog grabbed hold of him and tossed him about like a rag doll.

Nicky Henderson, from Gracemount in Edinburgh, was savaged by his friend's American bulldog on Thursday. The attack was so severe the schoolboy thought the dog was going to eat him.

The teenager is now recovering in hospital following the ordeal, which only ended when neighbours intervened and prised the animal's jaws apart with broomsticks.
