The wife of dog attack victim Keith Chadwick has told how he ‘thought he was going to die’.
Kelly Chadwick told the Manchester Evening News that her husband is ‘very lucky to be alive’ and will be left permanently scarred for the rest of his life.
Postman Keith, 36, suffered severe face and leg injuries during the terrifying incident on Fife Street in Accrington at around 8.25pm on Tuesday, and underwent four hours of surgery at Royal Blackburn Hospital on Wednesday night.
Kelly, 34, said the incident has been an ‘absolute nightmare’ and he will have to live with the injuries ‘for the rest of his life’.
A man from Accrington was arrested on suspicion of having a dog dangerously out of control in a public place and has been bailed until May 11.
Two dogs have been seized by police.
