Staff writerNovember 13, 2013 

Nga Woodhead, 65, died suddenly while being treated for injuries she suffered when two pit bulls attacked her.


A candlelight vigil will be held Thursday evening to honor and remember a 65-year-old Spanaway woman who died after being attacked by two pit bulls.

Nga Woodhead died Nov. 5, six days after she was attacked while on her daily walk about a mile from her home. Officials said she died of a heart attack brought about by the trauma from dog bites.

The vigil will be held at 6 p.m. at 162nd and Pacific avenues in Spanaway, which is where Woodhead was attacked. Police said the attack was unprovoked.

The vigil is open to the public. Attendees are asked to bring their own candles.
