A KWAZULU-NATAL mother is fighting for her life in a Durban hospital after she was almost ripped to pieces by two pitpull terriers on Friday. Janet Mngadi, 40, had to have both her arms amputated in emergency surgery after the attack. She also sustained severe facial injuries and is being kept on a ventilator in the King Edward Hospital’s icu ward. She was savaged by two pitbulls at a home in Amanzimtoti, where she had started working three days before as a domestic worker for policeman Sergeant Deon de Welzim. Mngadi was the sole breadwinner in her family as her husband is unable to work due to medical reasons. The couple has five children aged between 21 and 10. Police say the matter will be referred to the KwaZulu-Natal director of prosecutions for a decision on whether or not to prosecute the owner of the dogs. Both pitbulls were put down after the attack.
