Two young boys were in the hospital Tuesday after being attacked by a pit bull in San Bernardino County.

Officials said the boys -- 1 and 2 years old -- were playing in the fenced backyard of family friends when the friends’ family dog attacked.

Both boys were rushed to the emergency room, officials said.


The 8-year-old pit bull was quarantined and will be transferred to a humane facility, officials said.
