The Elizabeth Police Department was called to the child’s home at 5:25PM; by 6:30PM, he was pronounced dead at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.
A neighbor told WABC that the little tot’s mom was frantically panicking trying to pull the vicious canines off her son.
“I didn’t sleep all night,” neighbor Maria Rocha told the station. “My heart is broken. I didn’t sleep all night.”
“I cannot believe this happened to a little 3-year-old,” Rocha added. “He’s a baby. Could be mine, could be somebody else.”
“He’s a baby, and killed by dogs?”
“I just hope that he didn’t suffer, you know what I mean?” she said. “I hope he didn’t suffer, that it was quick.”
The dogs belong to the child’s family, acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo and Elizabeth Police Chief Giacomo Sacca and Police Director Earl Graves said jointly on Thursday.
