MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An elderly Memphis man died Tuesday after two pit bull attacks that also injured three people, including two fire department workers.

Memphis Fire Department crews were called to the scene of the dog attack at about noon Tuesday in a neighborhood near Memphis’ downtown.

A 71-year-old man was in cardiac arrest and suffering from severe bites after two pit bulls attacked him. Battalion Chief Keith Staples said the man died at a nearby hospital, though it was not immediately clear how he died.

Crews also found a 25-year-old woman with dog bites. Police said she was in critical condition. It was not clear if the man and woman were related, and their names were not available late Tuesday.

A paramedic and a fire lieutenant also were bitten by the same dogs at the scene. Fire Lt. Ray Pelletier was bitten on the lower leg, and paramedic Ken Hartfield was bitten on the abdomen and lower leg. They were taken to a hospital with non-critical injuries, Staples said.

It’s not clear where the dogs came from. They have been captured.

Memphis law requires that dangerous or vicious animals be kept confined on a leash and muzzle, in an outdoor pen or kennel, or indoors.
