5-Year-Old Girl Is Viciously Attacked by Two Dogs – Shaquille O’Neal Steps in After Hearing the Story

When an innocent girl’s life was brutally destroyed, a larger-than-life superhero arrived to save the day.

No little girl should ever remember it. Syrai Sanders, age 5, and Logan Braatz, a friend and next-door neighbor, were savagely mauled by two huge dogs as they were walking to the school bus stop.

Sanders underwent 8 surgeries in 2 months, spent weeks in the hospital, and just about made it. Logan sadly passed away.

Andie Brasley, Braatz’s uncle, expressed his indignation to AJC, describing Logan as his very own “mini-me.”

Brasley remarked, Logan deserves more than this. Syari was entitled to better. Better than this was due to the other kids. And it’s our responsibility to take action.

A dejected Sanders responded, “I miss Logan, playing with him, talking to him,” when asked about her pal.

She would receive an unexpected invitation from a compassionate giant who would make her smile even though she couldn’t get her pal back.

Shaquille O’Neal, a legendary basketball player, was that huge. He was inspired to take action after hearing Syrai’s terrible story on the news. The Sanders family was thus invited to the “Go Rooms Go” furniture store in northwest Atlanta. He would buy them brand-new furniture there to support them in starting again. He also purchased a new laptop for Syrai.

Images show Sanders playing hide-and-seek with the big kid O’Neal throughout the store while O’Neal hides. You can bet Syrai had the upper hand in the contest.

Willie Sanders, Syrai’s father, claimed that O’Neal has kept in touch with her family and has been keeping tabs on her ever since the attack. He also said that the large person doesn’t need any hype.

We communicated daily, brought up her well-being, and he still showed up, but he refused to go on camera because he didn’t want to do it for the news. To me, he is a fantastic man.


Sanders still has a long recovery ahead of him, one that may involve additional operations.

Yet Syrai has not just been dancing and grinning since leaving the hospital, according to her mother Jeresha Williams, who spoke to FOX a week later. She has also put on a brave front.

Williams added, “Today was her first time seeing herself, and I didn’t know how she was going to handle it, but she was looking as though she was looking at how she was, how she had been throughout her life, and I asked her “Did you see how beautiful you are?” and she answered “Yes.”

That is the tenacity of a champion, right there. Sanders stated that returning to school and playing the piano are what motivate her.

Cameron Tucker, the dog’s owner, was detained for reckless endangerment. We can only hope that it acts as a warning to dog owners to keep their dogs on leashes or in secure enclosures to prevent another disaster.

On the plus side, it’s heartening to watch a girl’s courage overcome adversity. And not a single scar stands a chance when you have a real-life superman on your side with a heart bigger than his frame.

To be a hero, all you need is a good heart; you don’t need a “S” on your breast.
