North Carolina Mom Tries to Save 1-Year-Old From Dog Attack in Harrowing 911 Call
The mother tried stabbing the family dog, to no avail.
A harrowing 911 call chronicles the moments a mom tried to save her 1-year-old daughter from a pit bull attack.
The dog reportedly attacked Triniti while she and Harrell were outside their North Carolina home.
“I need some help,” an emotional Harrell tells the dispatcher. “My dog is attacking my daughter.”
The dog would not let the child go, though Harrell tried all of the dispatcher’s instructions, according to reports.
The dispatcher instructed the mom to try to pry open the dog’s mouth and hit it on the head. When that failed, the operator told the Harrell to slit the dog’s throat to stop the attack, but nothing worked.
Harrell also reportedly tried to stab the dog, to no avail.
A deputy arrived and eventually shot and killed the dog, but it was too late, WRAL reported.
Triniti was transported to University of North Carolina Children’s Hospital, where she died a few days later.
