Baby Dies After Being Bitten By Family Dogs
WEST COLUMBUS (James Jackson/Kate Liebers) -- A nearly three-month-old girl has died after suffering injuries from dogs, Columbus Police Department reported.
Police said Mia Gibson's death appears to be accidental. She apparently fell off the couch where her dad was sleeping, then bitten by the family's two Shiba Inus.
Medics responded around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday to the gated apartment complex on Lake Shore Drive. The baby was transported to Nationwide Children's Hospital, where she pronounced dead at 7:45 a.m.
CPD said the baby had been born premature and was released from the hospital around Thanksgiving.
An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Franklin County dog warden took the two dogs.
Police said they have been in contact with the parents and charges were not likely to be filed.
