Woman dies after dog attack

COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio woman has died from injuries suffered last week when the family dog attacked her.

County sheriff's reports and a hospital spokeswoman said 35-year-old Rachael Honabarger of Coshocton died Saturday at a Columbus hospital.

Coshocton's dog warden said Honabarger was attacked Tuesday by the family's dog, a 100-pound, 3-year-old German shepherd. She is believed to have suffered wounds to her neck.

The Coshocton Tribune (http://ohne.ws/11NmHGP ) reports that a neighbor was credited with seeing Honabarger in distress, pulling the dog off her and performing first aid until emergency personnel arrived.
