Fatal pit bull attack

Cause of Death
UPDATE 11/07/13: The Seattle Times reported earlier today that the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office said 65-year old Nga Woodhead died of a heart attack brought on by “extremity contusions, lacerations and fractures due to dog bites.” The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department plans to recommend prosecutors file criminal charges against the owner of the pit bulls, Santiago Quecada. “They were his dogs,” spokesman Ed Troyer said, “They should have been locked up.”
On October 30, Nga was on her daily walk, about a mile from her Spanaway home, when the two pit bulls began attacking, her husband Charles Woodhead said. “She didn’t see the dogs coming. They ran up behind her and attacked,” he said. Charles was with his wife in her hospital room on Tuesday when her heart stopped. The couple had been married for 41-years. Their 42nd wedding anniversary was Wednesday; the day the medical examiner’s office released her cause of death. – DogsBite.org
