767  Light Myanmar 

An elderly couple in Lauderhill has been transported to the hospital after they were attacked by an animal believed to be a bobcat. Lauderhill Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene of Northwest 44th Street and Inverrary Drive at around 5 a.m., Friday.

Rescue officials said 85-year-old Elsen Fray suffered puncture wounds to her face and arms and lost part of her finger. She was transported to Broward Health Medical Center and is said to be in fair condition. Her husband, 71-year-old Rupert Fray, who just had open-heart surgery, fell down while trying to protect his wife. He was also transported to Broward Health Medical Center, but he has since been discharged and remains by his wife’s side. Fray’s brother said when he saw the early morning call from Rupert, he knew something was wrong.

“Very scary to see him calling me at six o’clock in the morning, so we know something must be wrong,” said Fray. “He went to help her, and he fell down and has a fractured hip. He was trying to help his wife when a bobcat attacked her. He was trying to help out with his condition. He has a heart problem.” Fray said his brother and sister-in-law would take their early morning walks everyday. A maintenance worker told 7News about what he heard from officers at the scene.
