Newborn infant dies after dog attack at Ohio homeNewborn infant attacked by family dog at her Ohio home suffers head trauma, dies hours later
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) ' An Ohio coroner's investigator says a 3-day-old infant died hours after she was attacked by a family dog while sitting in a swing.
The investigator tells The Blade in Toledo (http://bit.ly/KX2JTo ) the baby girl suffered head trauma at a home near Beaverdam in northern Allen County on Thursday evening. He says the attack apparently lasted only seconds.
He says the girl's parents were in a different room and said they didn't hear noises from the dog or the infant.
She was flown to a Toledo hospital, where she died. An autopsy was planned.
A sheriff's officer said the dog appeared to be a "pit bull" mix. It was put in the custody of the county dog warden.
