Newborn twin girls were mauled to death after the family dog became aggressive.
According to the Police in Brazil, the incident was described tragic after a mother briefly left her premature babies to speak to a neighbour, which was when the canine attacked.

The twin girls, Anne and Analú, died on June 23, the day they were scheduled to be born by caesarean, having arrived a month early.

Heartbroken mother Elaine Novais, 29, raced to her bedroom where the 26-day-old children lay after she heard their cries. She dragged the dog away to stop the attack but the dog had already managed to inflict critical damage to their abdomens.

A neighbour, a nursing assistant, administered first aid before they were rushed to hospital. Doctors confirmed that one of the twins had died instantly from her wounds while the other was gravely injured and suffered a cardiac arrest, with the medical team unable to save her.

Elaine had to be sedated after collapsing with shock at Maria Pedreira Barbosa Municipal Hospital.

“I pray that they don’t fall into a depression but it will be difficult because the children were beautiful, really loved and desperately wanted.”

The police have opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the twins’ death.
It is unclear what triggered the dog’s attack or what has happened to the dog following the incident.
