The newborn was rushed to hospital in a serious condition, but sadly died of his injuries.

A man, 35, and a woman, 27, were arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter following the tragedy in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Police were called to the infant’s home after he was attacked by his family’s dog on Sunday afternoon.  

One burst into tears as she said: « She was a brilliant mum but her whole life fell apart when he died.

It is not known if the dog – believed to be a crossbreed – has been destroyed.  

« Two parents have just lost a child and three other children a brother in such terrible circumstances.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: « On arrival at the property, emergency services discovered a 12-day-old baby boy had been bitten by a dog and suffered serious injuries. »
