Tornado Survivor Killed

GARLAND CO., Ark. (KARK) — A five-year-old boy who survived the tornado that demolished most of Moore, Okla., was killed by a dog while staying with family friends.

It happened at a home in Garland County, Ark. The boy had been staying with friends of the family, along with his two-year-old sister, while his parents tried to rebuild their home that was destroyed in the Moore tornado.

The boy was reportedly attacked by a bull mastiff that weighed between 150 and 170 pounds.

“The child was putting on some shoes and was crying and upset,” Garland County Deputy Scott Hinojosa told KARK TV in Little Rock. “The dog possibly took that as being aggressive and at that time the child was attacked.”

He was taken to a hospital, but did not survive.
