Woman ‘Viciously Mauled’ by Dog After Seizure Onset

2018-08-26 22:13
A 42-year-old woman is reported to have been mauled to death by her dog at a home in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Aug. 22 after she began having a seizure. The dog was found standing over her dead body before turning toward police and charging at them. Police shot the dog, and it died near its owner-Della Riley whom it had attacked. The Associated Press said the dog was a pit bull, citing police sources. Earlier in the day, Riley’s son had run across the street to call for help, according to neighbor Jon Seymoure, WCPO reported. The woman who made the 911 call declined to give her name, but told WKRC: “[The boy] said he was getting his dad because his momma was having a seizure.” The Cincinnati Fire Department (CFD) received the call regarding “a person having a seizure” at Della Riley’s residential address. Upon arrival, CFD personnel said they witnessed “a female being attacked by a dog inside the residence,” and called for help from the Cincinnati Police Department (CPD).
