A 33-year-old father of four died on May 31 after selflessly saving his 5-year-old daughter who was being attacked by a dog. Officers arrived at Robert Joseph Quick’s home in Fort Madison, Iowa, and found a large and aggressive dog attacking him, according to a statement from the Fort Madison Police Department. When they tried to help him, Quick “requested the officers help his daughter, age 5, who had been bitten in the face by the dog.”

Trish Fortner: the person who owns the should pay for his funnel and pay for the daughter hospital bill

Meisha Covington: Prayers go out for this family. This real man layed down his life for the sake of his child. When some men want even acknowledge that they even have a child. Something to think about. RIP. 🙏

Pam Morrow: my prayers are with you and your family 🙏 May the lord guide you through this time of sorrow 🙏

Larry Canty: God be with them all. Definition of a true HERO !! SALUTE

What a Horrible Tragedy for This Family And Friends who Will Definitely Miss A Wonderful Father and Family Man. This is Such a Great Loss for The Children who have Lost their Father on the Behalf of Someone Else's Negligence. My Deepest Condolences and Prayers for Their Healing.

all of the blaming is pointless. he was meant for this, it was Gods will. he did not seek glory for his actions, he only cared about his kids. he will go to heaven. I am sure of that. 😇✌🤙

they should have to pay and also get some jail time why these people with these vicious dogs getaway with such Acts and they don't pay a single penny or serve no jail time something has to be done about that they care more about their dogs then they care for about human lives the dog owners I mean there has to be some kind of punishment are there dogs doing what they do if it was up to me I would turn t their own dogs on them see how they like it

if people want dogs they SHOULD KEEP THEM FENCED IN OR ON A LEASH. SOME DOG OWNERS HAVE NO RESPECT FOR OTHERS PEOPLE. THEN WHEN THEIR DOG GETS RUN OVER ETC THEY WANT TO CRY AND BLAME THE DRIVER
