A Sunday of babysitting ended tragically for a Dayton, Ohio grandmother. The woman was watching her 7-month-old step-grandson, Jonathon Quarles Jr., when her dog jumped a gate and viciously attacked the baby.
The grandmother fought off her dog but was unsuccessful. After the attack, she frantically carried the child to her neighbor’s house for assistance in calling 911. With the dispatcher on the line, the grandmother could be heard wailing, “The baby’s dead!”
The grandmother was visually distraught, needing physical support from officials who had arrived at the scene on Sunday.
