2-year-old mauled by pit bulls

By Jason Old, WIS

A 2-year-old Sumter boy remains hospitalized in critical condition after being mauled by two pit bulls Sunday night.
Police say officers were dispatched to 17 Carroll Drive Sunday around 8:45 p.m. after April Sumrall reported her 2-year-old son missing.
As officers arrived on scene, the child's father found the child in the fenced back yard of 13 Carroll Drive. The child was found lying on the ground near two adult pit bull dogs, according to police.
The child suffered severe head injuries. Police say it was evident that the child had been attacked by the neighbor's dogs.
The child was immediately transported to Tuomey ER and then later airlifted to Palmetto Richland Hospital where he remains in critical but stable condition.
Animal Control responded to the incident location and took possession of the two pit bulls.  The animals will remain in quarantine pending results of the investigation.  
This incident remains under investigation by the Sumter Police Department.
