Chicago – A woman who was attacked by five pit bulls spoke about the harrowing experience from her hospital bed Friday, saying she felt fortunate to be alive.
Gabriela Munoz Lopez was walking in the 6600 block of South Richmond Avenue on Thursday afternoon on her way to pick her children up from school when the dogs came barreling toward her out of nowhere, she said.
Lopez, a Walgreens clerk and a mother of three, lives a few blocks from where she was attacked. Lopez said her rescuer visited her in the hospital. "I was crying because I couldn't find the right words to say 'thank you,'" she said.
