A Fort Washington woman is fighting for her life after police said she was viciously mauled by two American pit bull terriers Wednesday night. Prince George’s County Police Chief Henry Stawinski said neighbors overheard screams and phoned police; he said that may be the reason the woman is alive at all. When officers arrived at the house, the dogs were still on the attack. "The [officers] were in equal physical danger to this woman, because of the nature of this attack," Stawinski said. Police shot at the dogs to get them off the woman and help the victim. "They didn’t bat an eye, and they saved her life," Stawinski said.
