ONE WOMAN HAS DIED and a young man is in hospital after being attacked by dogs this morning.

Police spokesman Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler says the 74-year-old resident of Monroe Road, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, was attacked by a “pack of dogs” around 5:30 a.m.

A 30 year-old male who tried to help was also attacked and he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment.

Cobbler said they were told the dogs were pitbulls, but have been unable to confirm this.

The woman was on her way to church. 

Police investigations are continuing. (BN)
