Garsfontein, Pretoria - A Pretoria woman suffered critical injuries when several rottweiler dogs attacked her in Garsfontein on Tuesday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Jeff Wicks said the domestic worker was working in a garden when she was attacked.

“They dragged the woman down as she frantically tried to fend them off with a hosepipe,” he said.

“A security guard, hearing her frantic cries for help, rushed to her aid and managed to drag the woman to safety.”

Paramedics placed her on a manual ventilator before airlifting her to a nearby hospital. - Sapa
