The Enterprise city council has honored a kindergarten student from Holly Hill Elementary with saving the life of a friend.
Mayor Kenneth Boswell read a special recognition proclamation. Lakwan Jackson received a thank you from city officials.
The six-year-old fought off a pit bulldog last month that was attacking another child. The dog had escaped from a neighbor's backyard. Lakwan grabbed the dog by the collar and held it until help arrived. The victim was bitten several times.
Officials said thanks to Lakwan; the dog bite victim is doing well and is back in school.
