ThinkSpain , Monday, June 7, 2010

A three-year-old child has died today in Santa Cruz de Tenerife after being bitten by a pit bull terrier.

According to information provided by the police, the incident occurred at around 3.30pm in the La Gallega district of the Tenerife capital.  The child was in his mother's arms when the dog pounced on him and bit his neck.

The child was taken immediately to the Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria hospital, but died shortly after his arrival there.
The dog, who is owned by the child's father, was left locked in the house while the parents took the child to hospital.

Police have contacted specialists at the Valle Colino dog pound to deal with the animal.
