ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Public Schools officials say a student has been hospitalized after being bitten by a dog on a campus playfield.
School district spokeswoman Kimberly Willis Green says a student who was bitten on the football field at The New Schools at Carver Monday afternoon suffered bite wounds to the face and has been taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Green says witnesses reported seeing two dogs on campus.
The incident prompted a lockdown, which had been lifted as of 3 p.m. Green said the attack did not disrupt student dismissal.
It's unclear who the dogs belonged to, or how they got onto the football field. Additional information was not immediately available.
