A rescue dog mauled a sleeping two-month old boy to death on April 20 in South Carolina.

Two-month-old Aiden Lee McGrew of Ridgeville, South Carolina was innocently sleeping in a baby swing in his home on April 20 when a dog attacked him. 

The baby boy was transported to Summerville Medical Center where he was pronounced dead after the dog bit and dismembered him.

When the dog attacked, his father and three-year-old sibling were asleep when it happened, reports. It wasn’t until the mother came home after taking her 7-year-old child to the doctor that she found her mauled infant.

“Today is one of the saddest days in my 20 plus years of being in the Dorchester County Coroner’s Office as I report to all of you, one of the worst deaths I have ever handled,” Dorchester County Coroner Christopher Nisbet said in a press release.

The couple’s two other kids are in the custody of The Department of Social Services. The investigation is still in progress.

What a tragic story!
