A grandmother from Uitenhage was seriously injured when she saved her two grandchildren from the jaws of the family Rottweiler.

Karin van Straaten (50) is still in a local hospital after surviving the dog attack last week.

Lammie Sr (55), Karin’s husband, says Karin put her own life on the line to save her two grandsons. The boys are the children of Lammie’s son from his first marriage.
