ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) - A New Mexico man almost lost his genitals to a dog bite when a 90-pound (40-kg) mixed breed pitbull attacked his eight-year-old daughter and he intervened to rescue her, police said on Sunday.

Authorities say the dog, named Stitches, bit the girl in the face on Saturday, puncturing the child's cheek. Her 35-year-old father, who was not named, moved quickly to save her.

Police say it then attacked him, latching onto his groin.
