Awful! This is just so terribly sad!
In south Fulton County near Union City, GA - 20 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta, a toddler was killed by the family's dog!!
The 2-year-old boy was attacked and killed by his family's pit bull when his mother was in the bathroom.
The dog had been in the family for eight years.
Neighbors noticed a commotion when they heard the mother screaming and saw her run out of the house and begin rolling around on the ground.
That's an absolutely heart breaking image.
We can't even begin to imagine what this woman was going through.
She was so distraught that she was brought to an area hospital for observation.
The authorities said the attack seems to be accidental and it's not clear if charges are going to be filed or if the dog will be euthanized.
That poor mother is in our thoughts and hearts.
