DELTONA, FL (WCMH) — Three people were injured Thursday when a squirrel attacked at a senior living center in Deltona, Florida.
“It’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them,” a 911 caller said. “It’s still in there and people are bleeding.”
The incident happened at the Sterling Court Gracious Retirement Living. Two residents and a staff member suffered from serious squirrel bites.
A woman sitting outside was bitten on her leg and immediately ran inside the center for help. As people attempted to provide first aid to the woman, the squirrel continued its attack indoors.
“It’s in our activity room, and it’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them,” the 911 caller said. “It’s still in there, and people are bleeding.”
Workers were able to eventually get the squirrel out of the building, but not before at least three residents were injured. Their conditions are unknown after the attack.
