News anchor got 70 stitches for dog bite
The Colorado news anchor bitten on the air last week received 70 stitches and is unable to speak because her mouth is sewn shut.
That’s according to her Facebook page.
Kyle Dyer, morning news anchor for NBC’’s Denver affiliate, KUSA, was doing an in-studio interview with a firefighter and the owner of a dog who had been rescued from a frozen reservoir. When Dyer bent down to kiss the dog, an 85-pound Argentine mastiff, named Max, turned and bit her.
On her Facebook page, she says she spent four hours in surgery, receiving 70 stitches in her upper lip, lower lip and nose.
“I am unable to talk because my mouth is stitched shut to allow for the skin graft to take and get the blood circulating in my lips again.”
Dyer was released from the hospital Thursday.
