MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - A 91-year-old woman is dead after a possible dog attack in a southwest Miami-Dade County home.

Miami-Dade police said officers were called to the home in the 9400 block of Southwest 18th Terrace after Carmen Reigada was found unresponsive just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the woman may have been attacked by three dogs at the home.

Detectives said Reigada had multiple dog bites on her face and head.

"They always had dogs. They always did," neighbor Berena Barnet said.

Reigada was taken to Kendall Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

An American bulldog, a Rhodesian ridgeback and a Labrador-mix were removed from the home by Animal Services.

"The dogs are fine," a family friend said. "I don't know why that happened because they are good dogs."

The cause of death has yet to be ruled by the medical examiner's office.
