9-1-1 Tapes: Brutal dog mauling of city workerPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- "911 where is your emergency?"
Caller: "There's a dead man in the park near 31st avenue and Belmont."
Sam Nasser called 9-1-1 as he witnessed two dogs drag what appeared to be the body of a dead city worker through a park last September.
911 dispatcher: "ok are you sure he's dead?"
But that worker - Carl Corona - was not dead. Despite laying face down in a pool of water surrounded by his shredded clothes.
911 dispatcher: "does he have any clothing on?"
Caller: "no, just shoes"
Two american bulldogs continued attacking Corona throughout the entire phone call.
Caller: "they've got his arm shredded to the bone. They are just tearing him up"
911 dispatcher: "I've got officers coming just don't hang up on me."
When officers arrived at the scene, the dogs turned on them - and they were forced to take lethal action.
Corona was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but survived the attack.
None of the officers were hurt.
