    Coroner's 'nightmare': Dog dismembers 2-month-old child

    SUMMERVILLE, S.C. -- A 2-month-old child was killed and dismembered by a dog in his family's South Carolina home as his father slept, authorities said Friday.



    Aiden McGrew's mother called 911 when she got home around 11 a.m. and discovered the boy's leg was severed by a retriever-Labrador mix the family had taken into the home a few weeks earlier, Dorchester County deputies said.
    The boy died at the hospital a short time later, Coroner Chris Nisbet said in a news release.

    Investigators are still trying to sort out how the attack unfolded. The father was being questioned by deputies Friday afternoon, Knight said.
    "It's terrible. I don't want to go into details about exactly what happened because the investigation is still ongoing," Knight said. "It was a real bad scene."
    The two other children in the home have been taken into protective custody, Knight said. Prosecutors are also following the case and the sheriff expects all the investigators will meet next week to discuss if any charges should be filed.

    Horrifying. I don't think that most people understand just how dangerous dogs can be. If people have small kids, they need to understand that dogs, which are not raised around children, largely view them as prey. But does this mean that CPS needed to remove the other children from the home? Anyone could have fallen asleep and left their infant in the swing. I can't imagine being the mom. Coming home to THAT. I would kill myself.

    WTF people: never EVER bring dogs of ANY size or even or even of any obedience level into a home unattended with any children of young age - or even slightly older children. Dogs are still just animals no matter what you feel about them.

    No seriously here's the thing:This is a debate site. You post a story about a dog attacking a child, and we all automatically know that this is bad situation. So when reading your OP, on a debate site, I'm trying to identify what the different sides are, predict what the arguments will be and who will be the players.On one side, there's the anti-dog crowd who will chime in about various laws restricting or banning certain breeds, etc.So what's the other side if not banning children? Is one supposed to argue the merits of K-9 attacks vs. no K-9 attacks?What kind of debate did you want to occur here?

    This isn't about banning guns. And banning children is a silly argument. It's almost like trolling. So now we're left with banning dogs-- which is also really dumb. Can we move on now? Thanks.

    And that is why you don't have medium-large new dogs in the house around your young children, unattended.

    If anything, have a smaller dog, like a chihuahua or a pompoo. Any sort of sweet little dog that works well with young children.

    I don't know the laws, but I think CPS is right in taking the children, if only temporarily. Can't even imagine the emotions at play.

    No - I've taken in countless 'small sweet dogs' - they're anything but sweet. All dogs - big or small - are capable of inflicting bites - nasty dirty bites.

    Horrible, and a very stupid parent. At least it wasn't a pit.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    The baby's dead: can't imagine it would be any worse than that.
