It was a little more than a year ago when a woman was attacked by three pit bulls in Saginaw County. Her neighbor helped rescue the woman, but then the neighbor was viciously attacked by the dogs and spent months in the hospital. He's now waiting for a criminal trial against the dog's owners to start. That criminal trial has been delayed for a third time, but Duane VanLanHam doesn't seem to mind. He's just glad to be alive. "I heard someone hollering, screaming, 'Help me!'" he said. That scream was a cry for help on the morning of March 5, 2009. It changed the life of VanLanHam. The woman who lived across the street in a Buena Vista Township neighborhood was being attacked by three loose pit bulls. VanLanHam grabbed a stick and started hitting the dogs, then grabbed his neighbor and flagged down a passing motorist. The dogs then started attacking VanLanHam. He was bitten several times, and during his hospital stay, infection set in. The tips of four fingers and five toes had to be amputated.
