FORMER NBA player Shaquille O'Neal has done a good deed for the family of 5-year-old Syrai Sanders, who survived a horrific dog attack in January.
The basketball legend supplied the family with new furniture, following the January 17 attack in Atlanta, where the school girl and her six-year-old friend Logan Braatz were attacked and mauled by two pit bulls. Braatz died from his injuries.
Sanders returned home this week after spending two months in the hospital, after being treated for severe injuries that she sustained.
