Baby girl dies as dad finds 'puppy lying on' 4-month-old & says 'my baby ain't breathing' in agonizing 911 call
A BABY girl has tragically died after her dad found their dog lying on the unconscious four-month-old in Ohio, say reports.
The distraught father begged the emergency dispatcher to send help, saying, "my baby ain’t breathing".
The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office said that Dayton infant Raelynn Larrison was pronounced dead at Dayton Children’s Hospital on December 31.
Her dad called 911 at about 7pm that night, desperately telling dispatchers: "She’s not breathing. My baby ain’t breathing…"
He also said: “The puppy was lying on her and I just now noticed it.”
Dayton Daily News reports that he was crying and pleading for help to be rushed to the house.
The dad had woken up from a nap to find his infant unconscious, and the pet 'lying' on top of her.
It's not clear what sort of dog was found on Raelynn, or whether it had fatally mauled her.
However, neighbor Lonnie Dapier described the pet as 'big'.
She’s not breathing. My baby ain’t breathing.
She told reporters at WRGT the dog had previously managed to flee from the family's home.
Lonnie said: "It’s a horrible thing if you can’t control an animal.
"In the first place, children that young shouldn’t have a vicious dog or a big dog like that around them."
She added: "God bless that child and I just hope they get that dog taken care of one way or the other so it won’t injure anyone else."
The Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center told WRGT that crews responded to the child’s home straight after the 7pm call.
Dayton Police Department hasn't released the cause of death as yet.
Cops are still investigating the fatality, with the Coroner's Office confirming the hospital had told officials of Raelynn's passing.
A GoFundMe page arranged to raise money for the baby’s funeral called her death an “unexpected tragedy".
It says: "A unexpected tragedy happen last night 12/31/2020, when we lost our beautiful four month niece.
“Please help in any way you possibly can so that we can lay this beautiful girl to rest.”
More than $6,000 of the $15,000 target has already been raised.
An autopsy has been scheduled, and no arrests have been made, reports WHIO.
