A TWO-year-old boy has died after being mauled to death by two Rottweilers that escaped from a neighbours garden.
Jaysiah Chavez, was in the front garden of his home in Fresno, California, on Friday morning when the dogs dug out of their owner’s yard and pounced, YourCentralValley.com reported.
Jaysiah’s grandmother reportedly tried to fight off the Rottweilers and was also bitten.
His grandfather ultimately fended off the animals before authorities were called to the home, police said.
Responding officers performed CPR on the boy to no avail, according to the report.
They rushed him to Community Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
