The toddler was taken by East Providence Fire Department paramedics to Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, where she was pronounced dead, East Providence police said in a statement.

NBC affiliate of WJAR of Providence reported that the incident took place at the home of the girl’s grandparents.

East Providence Police Department Chief William Nebus told the station that the attack happened in a backyard at lunchtime.

“The family had sat down for lunch outside,” he said. “The baby was on the ground roaming freely and the dog, in the fenced-in backyard, was also roaming freely. As far as we know, it was an unprovoked attack.”

East Providence police said in its statement that the dog, described as a “pit bull-type breed,” belonged to the family members who live at the residence.

The animal was “euthanized by police,” according to the department’s statement. Neighbors told WJAR that it sounded like police had opened fire on the canine.

Police and East Providence Animal Control were investigating the attack.
