Graphic photos: Laura Holmes 21 was left with her 'face hanging off' after she was attacked by dog

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

Head of ECOWAS National Unit, Ghana, Mr. Bonaventure Adjavor, who chaired the meeting, said, the fact that ECOWAS countries use different official languages such as French, English and Portuguese, the Commission would ensure the use of single currency note from 2020.“I do not see language as a barrier to single currency, the process to adopt the currency is ongoing and a new timetable has been set for 2020.
“We need to work towards that and achieve the vision 2020. The move for this currency was agreed by Heads of Government of ECOWAS countries in June 2001 but it was not realised.“We have put in place all frameworks to ensure that the single currency note is achieved in 2020,” Essien said.
