Reports from AZCentral
say that EMT responded to the scene about 8:00 p.m. Monday at the 15000 block of West Jackpot Way.
The dogs had apparently escaped from a fenced yard down the street and attacked the victim, biting her several times on her arms, legs and shoulders, said Sgt. Mark Ortega a Surprise Police Department spokesman. The victim was transported by helicopter to John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital in Phoenix where she is listed in serious but stable condition.
A neighbor was also bitten while trying to help the victim and was taken to a local hospital for injuries. Another neighbor, who is an off-duty Phoenix police officer, shot and killed both the dogs, Ortega stated.
It isn't clear if the owner of the dogs will be charged; the animals will be taken to a state laboratory for rabies testing.
