The little girl that could: Life after pit bull attack

Zainabou Drame rolls sideways down the steep slope of her front yard.Moments later, she runs down the sidewalk, the shoelaces of her sneakers untied. Her older brother follows. There’s no clear reason to run. It’s what 7-year-olds do.Nearly a year and a half after being severely injured in an attack by two pit bulls, Zainabou – as best she can – tries to live as if the incident never happened.The injuries she suffered in the June 2014 attack were devastating: She lost her tongue, most of her teeth and a third of her jaw bone. Her face was ripped apart and had to be reconstructed. She has undergone at least a dozen surgeries. And more await.She eats and drinks through a feeding tube into her stomach. Another tube in her throat helps her breathe. She can’t open her mouth. Her father, Abdoulaye, said she will almost certainly need the feeding tube for the rest of her life.
