NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ The future is still uncertain for a rescue greyhound named Lady who underwent a third round of surgery Monday after she â€“ and the 82-year-old woman who owns her â€“ were both attacked by a neighborâ€™s pit bull mix.
Wanda Misiaszek, of 175 St. Paul St., fell to the ground, striking her head, and she was bitten on the arm and fingers as she tried to protect Lady. The dog, meanwhile, suffered multiple deep puncture wounds, according to her nephew, Michael Calo.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Somehow, a toddler managed to fall out of a second-story window Saturday without getting hurt, police say.
The 2-year-old boy and his father, Isaiah Ethier, 27, were visiting friends at 291 Bernon St. when the accident happened at about 11 a.m., according to Detective Jamie Paone.
The child got close to the window by climbing onto a nearby countertop and then pushed on the screen, said Paone. The screen was still in place when the police arrived, but there was a large tear in it, she said.
