Man viciously attacked by six dogs at a residence in Poortview, West of Johannesburg

A man, believed to be in his late 30s, was left critically injured this afternoon when he was attacked by six dogs at a residence in Poortview, west of Johannesburg.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at approximately 12h00 to find several security members on the scene.

On closer inspection paramedics found that a man, believed to be in his late 30s, was lying inside the garden area. Unfortunately, paramedics were unable to gain access to the patient.

Local authorities and the SPCA were called to the scene for further assistance. Once the dogs had been moved, authorities were able to retrieve the patient and bring him to the awaiting paramedics.

Assessments showed that the man had sustained numerous bite wounds and showed no signs of life.

Paramedics immediately initiated CPR and advanced life support interventions, in an effort to revive the patient. Fortunately, after a few short minutes, the patient’s vital signs returned.

Once stable, the man was transported to Laratong Provincial Hospital for urgent care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
