At least three people injured in squirrel attack at senior living facility

At least three people were attacked by a squirrel at a Florida senior centre on Thursday afternoon, according to a 911 call. A woman called for medical assistance at the senior living facility in Deltona.

The caller told dispatch at least three people were attacked by a squirrel at around 2pm after it got into the activity room at Sterling Court Gracious Retirement Living. “It’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them,” the caller said. “It’s still in there and people are bleeding.”

People can be heard in the background asking each other if they are all right. “I feel light-headed. I don’t feel good,” a woman said in the background. During the more than three-minute 911 call, the squirrel was eventually tossed out of the building, but the caller said people required medical assistance.

You can hear people in the background of the call breathing heavily, saying they don't feel well. “I don’t know if we need an ambulance, but we need some care for people here,” the caller said. “ … The people are bleeding.” The caller finally said people have got to safety, in the office and lobby, after the squirrel was thrown out. The condition of the victims are unknown.
