Three injured - two in hospital - after dog attack in Worcester

Worcester Editorial 12th Jul, 2023   0

TWO PEOPLE are in hospital after a dog attack in Worcester this morning (Wednesday).

West Mercia Police were called to a house in Boughton Avenue around 9.10am and gave first aid to the injured – two men and a woman – before paramedics arrived.

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.

The 68-year-old woman was treated by crews and medics for serious injuries before being taken by ambulance to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital with the Midlands Air Ambulance medics travelling on board to provide continued treatment en route.

One of the men was treated for serious injuries before being taken to Worcester Royal Hospital by ambulance.

The second man was treated for injuries not believed to be serious. He did not wish to go to hospital and so was given self-care advice before being discharged at the scene.

All injuries sustained are now believed to be non life-threatening.

The dog was dead when officers arrived, and police have confirmed there is no further risk to members of public.
