Grandmother guilt over baby mauled by dogs

-

A woman who slept while her two pet dogs mauled her grandson will take self-recrimination and guilt to her grave, an inquest has heard.

Three-month-old Jaden Joseph Mack, who was staying with his grandmother Ann Denise Wilson at her home in Ystrad Mynach, South Wales, died after he was pulled from his bedding on a living room table and mauled by her Staffordshire bull terrier and a Jack Russell.

Mrs Wilson had been watching a DVD when she dozed off "for a few moments" and awoke to the horrific scene.

She had been minding the baby as normal over a weekend while Jaden's parents Christopher and Alexandra had a night off from looking after him.

Jaden suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage from the fall and would not have been aware of any pain during the attack by the dogs once he was on the floor, Newport Coroner's Court heard.

  • Having a child myself, I can't begin to fathom the pain the parents are going thru at this time, along with the guilt Grandma is going to have to endure the rest of her life. RIP little angel, and my sincere condolences to the family.

  • poor child :( really sad story i just hope he felt no pain at all and was unconscious.

    just goes to show you how quickly domesticated animals can go wild in a instant.

    i hate to say this for my love of dogs but i do hope they were euthanized. :(

  • euthanized with a wrench over a extended period of time. If it was my child those dogs would know the meaning of terror.
