Baby Dies After Dog Attack
Police investigating an incident that took place in Telford yesterday morning (20 November) that ended in the death of a young baby have confirmed the baby boy died as a result of a dog bite.
Police officers and paramedics were called to the address in Ketley at just before 8am on Tuesday following a report about a baby that was unwell.
He was taken to the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford by paramedics but died soon after being admitted to hospital.
As in all cases of this nature, West Mercia Police launched an investigation immediately to establish the exact circumstances.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Jamieson said:
“Our investigation is ongoing but it appears that the baby died as a result of a dog bite. The dog in question was a family pet – a Jack Russell – and this animal has been put down.
“A post mortem will be taking place to establish the exact cause of this baby’s death but at this stage it does appear to be a tragic accident.
“I would like to ask the press to report this incident as sensitively as possible as the family involved are devastated by their loss. They have no desire to speak to the press at the present time and therefore I would request that their privacy is respected.
“With an investigation ongoing, there is no further comment I can make on this matter apart from to say that all our thoughts are with the family of the baby at this extremely sad time.”
