A Scots dad could be left permanently disfigured after he was attacked by two dogs.
James Nicol visited a friend’s flat in Aberdeen when the two dogs pounced and bit him on the legs as he cowered in fear.
The 43-year-old father of one believes he could have died – but his quick thinking saved him.
A minute into the horrific attack, Mr Nicol managed to crawl out of the property and call 999. It is understood a neighbour also called 999 to report that Staffordshire bull terriers had attacked Mr Nicol.
Paramedics attended and took Mr Nicol to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, where he remains.
He said: “I’m just hoping to provide awareness of how dangerous and powerful these types of dogs are and that people should think twice regarding approaching such dogs.”
