Good Samaritan has testicle ripped off by dog after trying to stop animal attacking young woman who fled in terror

A good Samaritan had his testicle ripped off by a dog after trying to stop it attacking a young woman.

The 47-year-old man came to the rescue as the woman was set upon by two aggressive dogs in the street.

The American Staffordshire Terriers then turned on two men in the city of Iasi, Iasi County, north-eastern Romania.

Disturbing video shows the pair trying to fight off the frenzied animals which had escaped from a nearby house.

The brave men are seen distracting and chasing the dogs while the 22-year-old woman flees with her clothes ripped.

During the struggle, one of the dogs lunged at the victim and bit his crotch, leaving him with eye-watering injuries.

The other Good Samaritan, 66, was also bitten on the arm while trying to push away one of the dogs.

Paramedics were called to the scene where they tended to both of the men and the woman.

Local emergency services chief, Diana Cimpoesu, said: "One of the three victims, a 47-year-old man was bitten in the genitals and had his left testicle ripped off.

"He was given emergency medical assistance and was transported at the urology hospital, where he was immediately operated on."

The horror attack was caught on mobile phone video filmed by residents of nearby buildings who heard barking and screams.

An ambulance service spokesman said: "Our team found one 22-year-old woman, with injuries on her left knee and left arm and also a 66-year-old man, with his right arm bitten by dogs.

"The third injured person was the worst, having serious injuries in the genital area of his body."

Police have opened a criminal case and are investigating the owner of the dogs, a 60-year-old woman.

It is thought that the woman is already being investigated over another case in which the dogs attacked a person without causing any injuries.
