At Least Three Injured As Squirrel Attacks Nursing Home

A squirrel wreaked havoc at a Deltona senior living facility Thursday, according to 911 calls.

A 911 caller said the animal attacked people inside the Sterling Court apartments on Alabaster Way.

“We had a squirrel that entered our building, and it’s in our activity room, and it’s jumping on people and biting them and scratching them,” the caller said. “We need help. It’s still in there and people are bleeding.”

In the background of the call, people can be heard frantically yelling, “The squirrel is still in here.”

The caller later tells the dispatcher that someone threw the animal out the door.

“They told me they threw it out of the building,” the caller said.

The caller said she ran inside her office to call 911. She told the dispatcher at least three people were bitten.

“We need help for the people,” she said.

She then told the dispatcher an ambulance was needed for at least one of the victims, who she said appeared to be bleeding badly.

Officials have not said the condition of the victims or any other details about the attack.
