Woman bitten by BSO K-9 during airport shooting incident


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A woman was bitten by a police K-9 in the middle of the chaos surrounding Friday's shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The woman from Georgia was running with a crowd of people in the lower lever of terminal 1 during fears of a second gunman on the airport property.

Believing it would be a safe spot to hide, the woman jumped into the back of a Broward Sheriff's Office police cruiser, not knowing it was a K-9 unit.

Once inside, the dog bit the woman on a undisclosed part of her body.

BSO says the woman did not suffer serious injuries, but was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital for treatment.
