NEVER do you wanna have to see or hear a story like this one. From First Coast News:
A 17-month-old boy was killed by a Rottweiler dog this afternoon on the Northside in the one thousand block Maynard Street.
Police say the child was bitten multiple times and rushed to the hospital but didn’t survive.
Chief Tom Hackney identified the child who was killed as Dylan Andres. Hackney says the attack happened shortly before noon when the boy and his mother returned home from the grocery store.
“The child wandered into the area where the dog was chained, the dog attacked the child,” said Hackney.
The boy’s mother, Destiny Kieszler, was unpacking groceries at the time.
Neighbor Jessica Golden says it all happened so fast.
“The baby I guess was following the mom with the groceries. The next thing, I was in the house and heard screams. I seen the father get on the dog trying to get baby loose,” said Golden.
Police say the Rottweiler will be euthanized.
