Former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal has bought new furniture for the family of a 5-year-old Atlanta girl who survived a dog attack that left another child dead.
WAGA-TV reports Syari Sanders returned home this week after being hospitalized since the Jan. 17 attack. Sanders and 6-year-old Logan Braatz were walking to a bus stop when they were attacked by two dogs. Logan died from his injuries. The dogs' owner has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
O'Neal, also known as Shaq, met Syari and her family at an Atlanta furniture store and picked up the tab for new items. The family tells WAGA that the current TNT analyst has been involved with the family since the attack.
