14-month-old boy dies after pit bull attack in Town of Walworth

WALWORTH COUNTY (WITI) -- Walworth County Sheriff's deputies say a 14-month-old boy was attacked by two pit bulls in the Town of Walworth on Wednesday, March 6th. The boy later died.

The boy was flown by Flight for Life to Milwaukee with critical injuries -- but later succumbed to those injuries.

The Walworth County Sheriff's Office says the incident occurred on North Lakeshore Drive.

30-year-old Susan Iwicki called 911 just before 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, stating that she and the young boy were under attack from two pit bulls she owns on the property. The animals were removed from the property, and a vet euthanized both pit bulls.

A neighbor told FOX6 News Iwicki was babysitting the child.

"It's a quiet area. A lot of the people don't live here year round, and it's a quiet road. I'm not gonna sleep well tonight," Sandi McGough said.

The area was quiet without many of its summertime residents, but those who live in the area year round said they were stunned and heartbroken to learn of the pit bull attack.

A neighbor told FOX6 News Iwicki had had the pit bulls since they were puppies, and said the dogs seemed well-behaved.
