The Glenwood toddler who was attacked by a pit bull on Monday has died.
A three-year old boy from Glenwood, Pietermaritzburg, who got attacked by a pit bull in the week , sustained injuries which led to his death.
Netcare 911 spokesperson – Shawn Herbst who gave more insight on the attack, said:
“The boy was fetched from school and dropped off at a friend’s house where a caregiver was present. Somewhere during that point , he was separated from her.”
Herbst made it known that it had been when the small boy went outside he got attacked.
“He suffered huge trauma to the top , face, neck, chest and hip area,” said Herbst.
Upon arrival of paramedics at the scene, the badly injured boy’s family was already present.
However, paramedics immediately drove him to a hospital.
“Later, we learnt he died from the severe injuries that he had sustained,” said Herbst.
It is still shady on what triggered the attack and whether if it had been only a dog that got involved within the attack or more.
Moreover, evidence are still being gathered since it had been discovered that there have been three dogs at the house .
