This is beyond terrible.
A 2 month old infant has been killed and dismembered by a dog while in his family’s home in South Carolina.
The baby was attacked around 11 a.m. on Friday, when his mother wasn’t home and his dad was still sleeping. The newborn was bitten multiple times and dismembered.
Earlier in the day, deputies received a 911 call from the mother who said her baby’s leg was severed by a retriever.
We are horrified and saddened that this has happened. We can only imagine the pain and sense of loss the victim's family is feeling.
None of the other two children in the house were hurt.
The coroner has called for an autopsy of the baby to determine if the baby was still alive before the dog dismembered him.
Authorities say this is the worse death they have seen in the past twenty years.
