In a freak incident that took place at 4400 block of Dix Street in Northeast Washington D.C. on Thursday, a 7-month-old baby boy was grievously injured after getting attacked by two pitbull dogs. According to the reports of Fox 5 News, the boy has been identified as Semaj S who has sustained a fractured skull along with other injuries and is currently ‘fighting for his life’ in the hospital. The victim’s aunt told the news outlet, “Every day is a fight for him. Every day is something different. He is still critical in the NICU.” D.C. police reported that along with Semaj, the dog owner’s daughter was also severely injured in the scuffle. “My sister had left her baby with someone who was supposed to watch her baby for her,” Semaj’s aunt said. “That person ended up leaving her baby with someone else without her knowing.”
According to the baby’s family, Semaj’s mother left him with a babysitter on 3rd November 2022. The babysitter went running some errands and left Semaj with another adult, who was not acquainted with the baby’s mother. The caregiver’s pit bulls mauled the 7-month-old during that time. The baby was rushed to the hospital and admitted to the intensive care unit where he underwent major surgeries on Sunday.
