05/18/12: Lucas County Coroner Dr. Cynthia Beisser said Friday that the baby died from blunt force injury to the head. Beisser said it was consistent with a “dog biting down on the head.” Apparently the baby’s mother and grandmother were just a few feet away when the attack occurred. The offending dog remains in custody while the investigation continues. Dog Warden Julie Shellhammer confirmed that the dog was a male pit bull-mix about 4 years old.
05/18/12: Monroe Township, OH – In a developing story, a 3-day old baby girl died late Thursday night after being attacked by the family pit bull-mix.

The baby’s parents, Audrianna Myers and Jared Darnell, drove the injured infant to Blanchard Valley Hospital where it was airlifted to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. – DogsBite.org
