Mother and 2 children injured after being viciously attacked by stray Rottweiler in Queens, NYC

A New York mother and her two children suffered serious personal injury after being bitten by a dog Saturday morning. The mother was taking a stroll with her two kids on the Rockaway Boardwalk in Queens when a stray Rottweiler attacked them and viciously bit them.  Neighbors and the police rushed to the scene of the attack, alerted by the scream of the 31 year old mom. When the police arrived she was lying face down on the ground in the snow with a Rottweiler on her back. The two children, 4 and 10 years old, were nearby, bloody and terrorized, helplessly looking at the scene. According to neighbors, the police had no other choice but to shoot and kill the dog. Police said that the mother suffered deep wounds on her face and hands and the children suffered bites on their hands and arms. They were all transported to the hospital.
