CINCINNATI, Ohio - An Ohio neighborhood is in shock after a woman was killed by her own dog.
Neighbors say her 4-year-old son ran out of the house Wednesday to get help for his mother, who was having a seizure.
When first responders arrived they found the unresponsive woman being attacked by her mixed breed dog.
Police were called in to assist, and when they tried to enter the home, the dog charged.
Officers shot and killed the dog.
The coroner's report said the woman was killed by the dog attack.
Officers said one of the bullets shot at the dog ricocheted off the floor and struck the woman in the stomach, but the coroner said she was already dead.

“Officers said one of the bullets shot at the dog ricocheted off the floor and struck the woman in the stomach, but the coroner said she was already dead.”
Geez, what cluster.
I'm reading quite a bit between the lines...
No mention of the dominant breed. This is starting to sound like the feral human attacker stories.
What was she thinking, having a seizure in the presence of a mixed-breed dog? Every responsible “mixed-breed” owner knows that seizures trigger those dogs. This was a clear case of irresponsible ownership. / s
Wonder if the vic had a criminal record. Or had family and/or friends with one...
The seizure scared the dog.
"Dispatch, this is Officer Blaster, we're in the house, and we are trying to get to a woman who is dead, but is guarded by a fierce dog"
"Officer Blaster, let's first make sure the woman is dead."
"OK, dispatch, now what?"
Big difference between a seizure and a dog attack. It would be interesting to hear the 911 call...
Or the caller claimed a seizure in order not to risk the dog.
mixed breed dog... Lets just leave it at that and let the pit bull rescue group use this as a “see see!” any dog can kill. Its the owners fault. otoh. if she had a shitzu, a corgi, a rat terrier, pug , greyhound , suzuki, cock a poo and a whole host of other dogs...she’d probably be alive today.
Who was having a seizure, the woman or the dog?
Blonde news interns can’t write sentences like they used to.
Sounds like a sick movie that thinks it is funny.
Can’t make this stuff up.
Mixed breed--golden retriever and cocker spaniel.
Maybe the dog “thought” she was possessed?
I never thought of pitbulls as exorcists.
That dog breed should be banned.
Another vicious Chihauhua killing their owner.
Tiny, I know, but a killer with big, sharp teeth.
It’s TV Journalism at its best.
“So you’re a drop-out from the journalism department at the junior college? You’re Hired!”
Barney Fife to the rescue! “This is big; this is really big”!
No, this article states the little toddler boy ran to get help, apparently just from her seizure.
But feel terrible for him. Bad enough to be scared of her seizures, then to find she was “seized” by his PBT type and killed.
I gather you are missing the /s tag.
Other articles state PBT (could still be mixed, but one might see PBT).
