|Miss Holmes, before the attack, says she is lucky to be alive after the attack while she was pregnant.|
A pregnant woman was left with these life-changing injuries after a close friend's dog mauled her face until it was 'hanging off'.
Laura Holmes, 21, said she feared she and her unborn baby would die when the American Akita dog attacked her as she sat sending a text message.
The animal leapt up and tore at her face, ripping chunks of flesh from her mouth and cheeks, leaving her needing 60 stitches.
Friends then tried to drag the pet off her and only succeeded when they repeatedly kicked the dangerous dog, which was later destroyed. More pics below
