Carmen Ruiz Romero was immediately hospitalized with severe skin lacerations and a fractured hip. Since then she has lost an eye too badly damaged to be saved and has suffered an ictus (stroke), however, her life is no longer in danger.
The dog, which had a collar but no microchip, had been hanging around the village for a few days before the attack took place. It has since been caught and is being kept in quarantine in the municipal dog compound, just in case it is carrying an infectious disease.
