Baby dies after family 'dog found laying on top of her' on New Year's Eve

A baby has died after she was reportedly found with the family dog lying on top of her.

Raelynn Larrison, who was just four months old, was found with the animal lying on her on New Year’s Eve in the US.

Police say emergency dispatchers were called by a man at around 7pm on Thursday in Montgomery County, Ohio.

Dayton Daily News said he woke to find the animal on the baby, who was not breathing and unconscious.

“She’s not breathing. My baby ain’t breathing,” a man told the dispatcher, according to the outlet.

Police continue to investigate the cause of death with an autopsy to be conducted.

A GoFundMe page has been established in the wake of the child’s death to raise money for her funeral.
