Pretoria – A woman sustained serious injuries when she was attacked by a dog while walking down Rooshourt Road in Centurion on Wednesday, paramedic services said.
"The woman… told paramedics that she had been walking down the road when she was attacked by the dog. Shortly after the attack, the dog apparently ran into a nearby residence," ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.
According to Meiring, paramedics arrived on the scene and found the woman seated on the pavement.
"Paramedics quickly assessed the woman and found that she had sustained several bite wounds on both her arms and legs."
Meiring said the woman was treated for her injuries and was provided with pain-relief medication before she was transported to Mediclinic Muelmed.
