Child from Effingham Recovering from Pit Bull Attack

According to an article in, a 5-year-old child that was attacked by a pit bull Tuesday remains in the hospital but is expected to survive.

The child, Wesley Frye, remains in a Savannah-area hospital where he underwent two surgeries after being admitted with injuries from the attack.

Per the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, Wesley sustained injuries to his face and leg after a pit bull attacked him while he was playing at a neighbor’s home in the Paddleford Subdivision.

One of the owners of the dog was able to get the dog out of the home during the attack.

The other owner was cited for failing to vaccinate the animal for rabies. The dog is being quarantined for 10 days at the County animal shelter. No criminal charges are expeced to be filed according to the Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

We certainly hope that young Wesley is able to make a full and quick recovery from his injuries.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
