Flagler County Woman Mauled by Five Pit Bulls
A Flagler County woman was airlifted to Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach after being mauled by five pit bulls last night. The 27 year old woman was walking with her 6 year old daughter when the five pit bulls attacked, and she yelled to her daughter to run home as fast as she could. Luckily, the girl made it home safely.
