A woman nine months pregnant was attacked by her own pit bull, breaking her arm and prompting her to be airlifted to a trauma center, according to initial reports.


The woman's brother called 911 at about 1:40 p.m. to report the dog bit the woman's arm and had broken it, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff's Victor Valley station officials.


Rescue personnel arrived at the home in the 7300 block of Braceo Street near Ranchero Road and found the victim bleeding profusely and said she appeared to be going into shock.


There are no indications the woman suffered any injuries to the stomach.


Animal control was also called to the scene.
