Around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, a 3-year-old boy fell out of a second-story window in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and was then mauled to death by pit bulls.

The fall was 15 feet into the family’s fenced-in backyard, according to initial reporting by RLS Media.

Neighbors and onlookers told news outlets they witnessed two pit bulls charge the boy once he hit the ground. He had reportedly suffered a neck injury due to the drop, however, locals said the dogs began to tear at the boy as he lay on the ground, which led to much more severe injuries.

WABC-TV reported the boy’s mother saw the incident occur and tried in vain to pull the family dogs off of him. Residents of the area told the outlet that the two pit bulls “were always a terror.”

By the time first responders arrived at the scene, the little boy was bleeding heavily and in critical condition, according to RLS Media.

WABC reported the boy was rushed to Trinitas Regional Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries approximately an hour after the fall occurred.

A local animal control organization was also called in to secure the two animals, and they have since been transported to another location.

The Union County Prosecutor’s Office, in tandem with the Elizabeth Police Department, is leading the investigation. No criminal charges have been filed at this time.

We at The Western Journal are praying for the boy’s family at this time and encourage our readers to do the same.

After Seeing Kids Playing Basketball with Milk Crate, Officers Go Above and Beyond to Get Them Real Hoop

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and when you’re a kid with limitless imagination, many things are possible. That was certainly true of a group of kids in one Chicago neighborhood whose love for basketball was great enough that they found what they could to set up a basketball court: a small cement slab and an old milk crate. It was enough for a time, even if it wasn’t regulation. But that all changed after some Chicago Police Department officers spotted the kids. The story that resulted was heartwarming enough that Chicago Police Superintendent David O. Brown had to tweet the story. “Officers from @ChicagoCAPS06 noticed a group of children in the neighborhood playing basketball using a milk crate as their hoop,” Brown wrote on Monday. “The officers saw an opportunity to help the kids with their game, so they got together to buy them a new hoop and basketballs.” Officers from @ChicagoCAPS06 noticed a group of children in the neighborhood playing basketball using a milk crate as their hoop.

The last two weeks have been turbulent for a family in Brick, New Jersey, after their beloved 3-year-old golden retriever ran off and disappeared. Jim Zangara had been on his boat with Chunk, the dog, and paused to talk to another boater. Looking for Chunk, he realized the dog had gotten off the boat. “And all of a sudden I looked to see where he was, and he was in the woods a little bit,” Jim told the Asbury Park Press. “And I said, ‘Come here, Chunk,’ and he had his toy in his mouth, turned around and boom. And for no reason.” “He’s very timid. He always has been. So maybe something scared him and that’s why he took off. It was very odd for him to do what he did.” “LOST DOG — Sunday 6/6/21 at F-cove,” Marie Puzio Zangara posted on the Lost Dogs in Ocean County Facebook page. “His name is Chunk, and he’s scared. Last spotted running back into the woods/marsh behind Mantoloking Rd. Please call 973-945-9299 or Brick PD if spotted! Please don’t chase — he’s very skittish — he will run.” Posts were shared across many relevant lost and found groups online. People kept their eyes open for the large dog, and his family waited and wondered if they’d ever see him again. As the days passed, Marie’s fears grew. “This past week has been tough,” she told NJ Advance Media. “No one had seen him since the eighth day he was missing. I was worried maybe he had gotten hit by a car or was off in the woods where we couldn’t find him or someone had grabbed him.” But then, on Tuesday morning, he was spotted, and it took multiple people on land and sea to get…
