A mother has taken to Facebook to pay tribute to her three-year-old son who reportedly died after he plunged from a third-story window and was mauled by his family’s pet dogs.
Nasha Soto, 23, has spoken of her heartbreak after her little boy was mauled to death by her pitbulls after he fell from the window at the family’s home in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
In a tragic Facebook tribute, mother-of-three Nasha wrote: “The worst thing that a parent can go through is having to give their sweet Angel back to Heaven,”, The Sun reports.
The post, which was shared on Friday, shows a drawing of a baby angel.
The dogs have reportedly been taken by a local animal control organisation, and city officials plan to euthanise them.
Friends and family have sent their words of comfort and condolences to Nasha following her tragic loss.
One wrote: ”Sending my condolences and prayers to you and your family.
“May God give you the strength to find some type of comfort especially for your babies. Never forget that you have the most precious angel in heaven.
“May his little soul rest in paradise.”
Another said: “Only Jesus can heal your heart mamas. I pray that God gives you the strength to wake up everyday and be strong for your little ones and husband.
“I pray that you heal and know that none of this was your fault. I pray that God brings blessings from here on out to you and your family! Amen!”
Police arrived shortly before 5.30pm on Wednesday to the home to find the three-year-old badly injured.
The little boy had a neck injury from the fall and bite wounds on his body from the dogs, according to RLS Media.
A nearby neighbor said she heard a bang and someone yelling “Help! No stop, no stop!”.
A man was seen running to the front of the house carrying the bleeding infant.
Another neighbour said the dogs were aggressive and would often be seen “jumping and barking” when she walked past the home.
In March, a similar incident occurred, also in New Jersey, when Aziz Ahmed died and his mother was hospitalised with serious injuries after their neighbour’s two pit bulls attacked them.
