LEMON GROVE, Calif. (AP) – San Diego County sheriff’s deputies say a baby died about an hour after being attacked by at least one dog.
Lt. Larry Nesbit tells UT San Diego (http://bit.ly/M3Z477 ) deputies were called to a Lemon Grove home around 5 p.m. Thursday. He says deputies found a woman holding an injured 8-month-old boy. Lemon Grove Fire Department paramedics treated the boy and took him to Rady Children’s Hospital, where he died.
Animal control officers removed three pit bulls from the home but investigators say they don’t know which one or how many took part in the attack on the boy.
The medical examiner has not yet released the victim’s name.
Lemon Grove is eight miles east of San Diego.
