A South Carolina 2-month old baby identified as Aiden McGrew was killed Friday after being dismembered by a dog while his dad slept.
According to Boston News, the boy was discovered dead when he mother got home around 11:00 am and found his leg severed. She called 911 immediately and Aiden was taken to a Dorchester County hospital where he died in moments.
Coroner Chris Nisbet sent out an email titled "Today's Nightmare" to the media which read:
"Today is one of the saddest days in my 20+ years of being in the Dorchester County Coroner’s Office as I report to all of you one of the worst deaths I have ever handled..."
Reports indicate that Aiden's dad was sleeping in the family's master bedroom, while he sat outside the bedroom in a swing, accompanied by the dog.
An autopsy is set to be conducted to determine if Aiden was dead before the attack. Investigators are to meet with the prosecution in the coming week to decide if charges will be made.
The family's two other children have been taken into protective custody.
Aiden's mother is said to have been away from the home because she was taking her 7-year old daughter to see a doctor.
Neighbor of Aiden Shirley Pargiello spoke on the family saying:
“I only saw them getting in and out of their car but they were very loving to their children... I know they have to be in shock. I know what it’s like to have children and grandchildren.’’
Our condolences go to the family of Aiden.
