In a similar incident in Kentucky in May, a two-year-old boy died after a pit bull mauled him inside his home. The victim grandmother rushed to her neighbor’s home screaming for help when she saw the dog attacking the boy. Neighbors reached the scene and tried to scare the dog away. One of the neighbors performed CPR till the paramedics reached the scene and rushed the child to a nearby hospital. However, the boy succumbed to injuries in less than two hours. An autopsy revealed the boy died from multiple blunt force injuries. The pit bull, which the neighbors described as “aggressive”, was taken away by the animal control.
