Boy, 5, reportedly dies after being accidentally choked by family dog

Boy, 5, reportedly dies after being accidentally choked by family dog

John Bruno died Saturday as the result of an accidental strangulation, according to the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office.

Police initially attributed the boy's collapse in his backyard to a cardiac arrest.

Investigators believe the dog, a 1-year-old hound mix, pulled the scarf too tightly around the child's neck.

Officers were called to the 1900 block of Palomino Drive around 4:23 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a young boy found lying face down in the snow, unresponsive. First responders began CPR, and transported the boy to Doylestown Hospital.

The boy's mother was home but inside when she looked out the window and saw her son unconscious, Philly.com said. She carried the boy inside and dialed 911. As of 9 a.m. Monday, the community has donated more than $12,000 to help the Bruno family with medical and funeral expenses.

The page, created Sunday, surpassed its $5,000 goal within hours.

Meanwhile, the community mourns the "vibrant" boy whose "boundless energy was electric". "Above all else John loved his mom, dad, and big sister", the GoFundMe page says.

"I can not thank everyone enough for your outpouring of love, support, and generosity for Tara, Francis, and Abby".
