(Scroll down for video) Police launched an investigation after a family dog allegedly killed a newborn baby by biting his head while he was asleep in a laundry basket, police in Ohio said.

21-year-old Kristy Grim told police that she and her 3-day-old son Aiden, were sleeping in the living room.

The baby was in a blanket inside a plastic laundry basket. She woke up to the child screaming, and his face was covered in blood.

Grim immediately called police and requested an ambulance.

While she was waiting for the ambulance to arrive, Grim tried to clean up the child’s wounds and stop the bleeding. The mother said that she saw bite marks on the child’s head and knew that the dog had bitten her baby.

The grandmother of the boy was also in the house. She said that the baby was breathing and responsive. When the paramedics arrived, the child was dead.

The dog was taken into custody. So far, no charges have been filed.
