Updates are at the bottom:

A tragic story coming out of Rideville is making the rounds on the national news circuit. 

At around 11 a.m. on Friday morning, a 2-month-old baby was discovered by his mother after being attacked and fatally wounded by the family's newly adopted retriever mix. What's really tough is reading the statements made by the Dorchester County Coroner regarding the death.

It is also repoted that the child's father was asleep and the mother had just arrived home before placing the call to police. The dog is currently in holding at the Dorchester County Sheriff's Depatment.
