Police say a two-and-a-half-month-old boy was attacked at around 11:41 a.m. Sunday by his family’s dog. The boy was airlifted to William Beaumont Hospital after being taken to the Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc Township.
The boy died at Beaumont Hospital.
“This is a tragic incident and it is a sad reminder to keep animals away from small children and babies no matter what the circumstances may be,” said Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard. “Animal behavior, whether intended as playful or territorial, can have devastating impact on small children.”
