FOUR people have been hurt after being attacked by a dog in Ourense (Spain).
A 47-year-old woman was the most seriously hurt and had to be helicoptered to hospital, while two others were ‘gravely’ hurt in the incident on Sunday.
Health authorities say all three are now out of danger after the attack by a mastiff dog in the town of O Bolo and are expected to be discharged from hospital soon. The fourth person was not seriously hurt.
The dog apparently attacked the two grown up daughters of its owners and one of their partners as well as a neighbour.
Manuel Corzo, the mayor of O Bolo, has confirmed that the dog is now in the kennel of A Rua, where it will be watched for a few days, before a decision is made about its future.
