I would not advocate jumping in with the dogs. The fall is likely to kill or seriously injure you, making it impossible to help the child and leaving yourself vulnerable to attack from the dogs. The question for me is: If I had been there, legally carrying a firearm, would I have fired shots in defense of the child. I don't know that any of us can really answer such a question unless we were actually there.
I would hope that I would have fired at the dogs farthest from the child. But it is quite possible that I would have stood there and yelled for help, just like the the rest of the folks who were there.
