(Scroll down for video) A School teacher was attacked and killed by his own dog.

Tom Vick, who was a social sciences teacher, died after being attacked by the family dog.

His wife, Diane Vick, who is the former Mayor of Bullhead City, Arizona, was wounded and her husband died when their family dog jumped on him on Saturday.

Mrs. Vick called 911 at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday, saying that her husband had been badly bitten by the dog.

The vicious attack came after Tom Vick tried to break up a fight between their boxer and cocker spaniel.

The boxer suddenly turned on its owners Tom and Diane Vick, killing him and injuring her.

Jack Hakim, the current Mayor of Bullhead City, said that the attack was “quite devastating.”

“We’ve had dog bites before, but never anything like this. It’s very sad for all of us in Bullhead City,” Hakim said.

The family is devastated by the attack, which came from their beloved dog, but are grateful that Vick survived.
