A 61-year-old woman died after being severely attacked by 5 dogs at her job as a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier in Interlachen, Florida.

On August 22, Pamela Rock’s truck had broken down on the side of the road and she started getting attacked by 5 dogs. Several neighbors heard her screams and quickly ran over to her to get the dogs off. One neighbor even shot a rifle into the ground to scare the dogs away.

Once police arrived, they started first aid and applied tourniquets until the ambulance arrived. Rock was immediately rushed to HCA Florida Putnam Hospital by ambulance and then flown to a trauma center in Gainesville, where she was in critical condition. She was pronounced dead due to her injuries.

They found the dogs inside a fence at a nearby home.

Animal control arrived and took custody of the 5 dogs that were identified by witnesses.

One neighbor told news reporters that dogs have been running rampant in the area for months.

“A postal family member lost her life in a dog bite attack. The U.S. Postal Service is deeply saddened at the loss of our employee. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and her co-workers at this time,” the U.S. Postal Service said in a statement.
