A newborn baby was killed Sunday when the child was attacked by a dog, according to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office.
The attack happened when the family dog, a pit bull, was able to climb up to the bassinet while the caretakers were out of the room, a sheriff's office spokeswoman said.
The child’s grandfather performed CPR, and the baby was flown to Bayfront Health Seven Rivers, where she later died.
Deputies say no charges are planned.
