A 68-year-old man sustained serious injuries after he was apparently attacked by a dog in Phoenix, KwaZulu-Natal on Friday.
The dog was believed to be a rottweiler.
ER24 spokesperson, Ineke van Huyssteen, said paramedics had found the man sitting on the lawn, being attended to by another medical service, at around 13:00.
She said the man had sustained serious injuries and had been transported to hospital for further medical care.
“It is believed that the man was working in the garden before he was attacked by a dog,” she said.
Van Huyssteen said the exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not known, but police were on the scene.
