EDGECOMBE COUNTY, NC (WITN) - The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office has released the 911 call from a mom as the family's PIT BULL MIX  was mauling her 1-year-old child.


The call reveals a harrowing 10 minutes as the mother, Miranda Harrell, attempts to get the dog to stop attacking her daughter Triniti.
Miranda says, "Hurry, she's dying! Please hurry."
Those were the frantic words were made to 9-1-1 Monday morning from Miranda during the attack at their home on Highway 43 South of Rocky Mount.
Miranda says, "Help me! Help me!"
Dispatcher: "Can you get ahold of him to try and get the dog off of her?"
Miranda: "I can't get him off."
Throughout the 9-1-1 tapes you can hear the operator advise Harrell on what to do, recommending at first that she attempt to hit the dog using any available nearby items.
Miranda: "She's dying please help."
Dispatcher: "Can you get ahold of anything a pot, pan, shovel, anything?"
Miranda: "Yes."
Dispatcher: "Hit him with it. Hit him right in the center of his head."
But when hitting the dog wouldn't work, and unable to pry open the dogs jaws, the 9-1-1 operator finally tells Harrell to grab a knife from the kitchen.
Miranda: "I've got one."
Dispatcher: "Okay, I need you to go back out there. Does he have a collar on?"
Miranda: "No."
Dispatcher: "Okay, I need you to grab him by one ear, and cut along the bottom of his neck. He's going to let go. Cut him across the bottom of his neck, it will release his jaw muscles, he won't have a choice but to let go."
Ultimately it would be two shots from a detective who had arrived on scene that would kill the dog, releasing Triniti from his grip and saving the young girls life.

PREVIOUS STORY:
A one-year-old toddler has been transferred to UNC Children's Hospital in Chapel Hill after deputies say she was attacked by the family dog.
Edgecombe County deputies say it happened Monday at a home on Highway 43, south of Rocky Mount.
Sheriff Clee Atkinson says Miranda Harrell and her daughter, Triniti, were playing on the back porch when the six-year-old pit bull mix attacked.
Harrell tried to stab the dog to stop the attack and the sheriff said when the first deputies arrived it looked like the dog was shaking a baby doll.
A detective also responded on his own, according to the sheriff. Acting quickly, the detective shot twice and killed the dog.
“We’ve discussed amongst ourselves a lot of law enforcement officers may have not been able to pull that trigger," said the sheriff. "But guess what, he is definitely a hero and he saved that baby’s life and I’m proud to have him on our team,”
Triniti, according to deputies, was clinging to life, She was first flown to Vidant Medical Center and then onto Chapel Hill where she is now in stable condition.
Sheriff Atkinson says the dog was a six-year-old pit bull mix.
The home has a "beware of the dog" sign posted, while the sheriff says they are looking to see if they've been called out there before for any aggressive dog calls.
No charges are expected to be filed in this case.

Wanna know what saves babies better than hero cops, bullets, knives, shovels, prayers, break sticks, wasp spray, fire-extinguishers, tasers, shanks, baseball bats, tire iron, golf clubs, water hose to the face, or ___________?

NOT HAVING A PIT BULL AS A PET!

I'm not sure, but is this the kid that had her legs amputated? By not having a pit bull, this family would not have to save their baby, or pay huge medical bills for the rest of her life.

Pit bulls, SO NOT WORTH IT!
