WATERLOO, Iowa (KWWL) - Vivien Brookman says me she felt like she was being eaten alive last Tuesday morning when she was attacked by three dogs.
She was on her morning walk a week ago when she was approached by the dogs. At the same time, she says one man was yelling at her to come inside his house.
"I took a step to go to the guy's house, and the dogs started growling at me and the two little ones bit me," said Brookman.
But the dogs didn't stop there.
"He got a hold of my face and I went down with it because I thought, 'He is going to rip off my whole face,'" Brookman said. "And I went down and they just kept biting and just kept biting and I just kept screaming."
Brookman is recovering at home and says she is lucky to be alive. She says it's all thanks to three young boys who tried to intervene while she was being attacked.
"They said they didn't, but they did -- they really saved my life," she said. "I want them praised and held in highest, and my heart bleeds for them."
