Police rushed to Brooks County Middle School on the Florida-Georgia border after hearing reports of the devastating dog attack.

When they arrived at a bus stop behind the school, officers discovered Williams’ body lying in a field, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

The children have already been taken to the hospital by a good Samaritan and are currently recovering from their injuries.

Family members shared pictures of the horrific cuts the children suffered after the attack, saying they were safe but suffered lifelong scars.

Crystal Cox, Williams’ sister-in-law, said the little boy ran to the school to get help when the dogs attacked but turned around when he thought no one would be around.

Then he spotted the stranger, whom Cox called an “angel.”

The little boy came back and pushed his sister out of harm’s way while the stranger fought back against the pack.

Cox didn’t know the man’s name but said he was “a blessing to my family.”

“Without him, I don’t know what the outcome would have been,” she wrote on Facebook.

Cox said the children had been stitched up and were in the care of their father.

“They pinned him,” she wrote.

“(He is) paid and resting at my house.

“We ask that you limit calls and messages if you are not an immediate family member.”

As the GBI investigates the attack, neighbors who live near the tragedy are calling for change.

“Dogs are being abandoned all over the county and no one can get help with them because there is no animal control in the country,” a neighbor told NBC affiliate WALB.

“I pray for this woman’s family. This is so sad.”

Another neighbor was heartbroken over the timing of the terrible tragedy.

“I feel for the family and the children because now they have to celebrate Mother’s Day without their mother,” they told the local outlet.
