COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A coroner concludes that dog bites caused internal injuries that led to the death of a 3-month-old central Ohio girl.
Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak tells Columbus media outlets that an autopsy confirmed dog bites caused the girl's death Tuesday morning.
Police say Mia Gibson was bitten by her family's dogs inside their Columbus condo. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Police Sgt. Steven Little told The Columbus Dispatch it seemed to be an accident. He said it appeared the family's two Shiba Inus didn't attack the baby, but rather were playing with her.
Police say the girl had been on the couch with her father and apparently fell to the floor as he slept.
The newspaper says animal control officials are holding the dogs for now.
