Two young children died after they were attacked by their family’s two pit bulls on Wednesday afternoon.
Their mother, who tried to save them, was also critically injured during the incident.
According to police, the two children, named Lilly Jane Bennard and Hollee Dean Bennard, were attacked around 3:30 pm. Both of them were pronounced dead at the scene.
Kirstie, 30, spent around 10 minutes trying to save her children from the two pit bulls.
Unfortunately, she was severely injured and is currently in a critical condition. Jeff Gibson, the uncle of the children’s father, said that her face was bitten multiple times during the attack.
According to the police, the condition of the mother has been upgraded to stable. The two pit bulls that attacked and killed the children were euthanized by the local animal services department on Thursday.
