Baby Killed: Family Dog Attacks Newborn Baby

WARREN, Ohio (AP) - Police say a newborn baby has died in northeast Ohio after being attacked by the family dog as she was lying in a bassinet.

Warren Township Police Lt. Don Bishop says the three-day-old girl suffered bite marks and scratches and was pronounced dead Monday at Forum Health Trumbull Memorial Hospital. Police believe the husky mistook the child for a stuffed animal.

Bishop says the infant's father left the room briefly and discovered the attack when he returned.

Fire Chief Kenneth Schick says the baby was in full cardiac arrest when the rescue squad arrived.

The animal was taken by the Trumbull County dog warden.

Police are investigating the accident. The family's name has not been released.
