Paramedics and animal control officers in San Ramon responded Wednesday evening to reports of a 2-year-old suffering serious facial injuries from a dog bite.
The incident occurred at Mill Creek Hollow Park, officials said.
The child was taken to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland with a severe bite to his cheek, officials said.
The dog was reportedly on a long leash playing fetch when the child picked up the ball and the dog lunged at him.
No further details were immediately available.
