Fatal Dog Attack

A six-year-old girl has died after she was attacked by a Rottweiler in South Georgia.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says Sydney Akin suffered bite wounds to the neck, side and back.

She was pronounced dead Saturday night after being airlifted to a Macon hospital.

Akin and her mother had gone to visit friends who have a small horse farm in Wilcox County.

Rochelle Police Chief Keith McDuffie says the attack took place when they entered a fenced yard.

The owners of the dog were not at home when the attack took place.
