Raelynn Larrison of Dayton was pronounced dead at Dayton Children’s Hospital on Thursday night, the Dayton Daily News reported, citing the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office. The Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center told WRGT that crews responded to the child’s home around 7 p.m. after a man called 911 to report that he awoke to find a dog lying on top of his baby. The man said that the child was not breathing and was unconscious, the Daily News reported. The breed of dog involved in the incident remains unclear, though neighbor Lonnie Dapier described it as “big” and said the animal had gotten out of the family’s house before.
