ATLANTA - A little girl in southwest Atlanta used her 6th birthday to remember her friend who was mauled to death by a dog earlier this year.
Logan Braatz, 6, died in January when he was attacked by a group of stray dogs while walking to the school bus stop. The dogs also came after Logan's neighbor, Syrai Sanders, who's been through a number of surgeries and continues to recover.
The horrifying attack left the community devastated and calling for change. Today, Logan's family is still struggling and mourning the 6-year-old's death.
Tuesday morning, Sahoni Cloud, one of Logan's classmates, decided to do something special in his honor on her 6th birthday. She asked her mother for $50 as a gift, which she wanted to share with Logan's family. Other family members and friends pitched in, bringing her birthday blessing to $300.
FOX 5 was there as Sahoni presented Angelica Braatz with the gift. The child's selfless act of compassion brought the mother to tears.
