A 50-year-old Greek woman lost her life when three shepherd dogs belonging to a neighbor escaped and attacked her in her garden.

Despite the immediate efforts of neighbors who rushed to the scene to rescue the woman and pry the dogs away from her, she suffered severe injuries and was bleeding profusely.
