JESSIEVILLE — A 5-year-old boy has been killed in a dog attack at a home in Jessieville.

The Garland County Sheriff's Department says the boy was pronounced dead at a Hot Springs hospital on Sunday.

A sheriff's department's report doesn't identify the boy, whose body was taken to the Arkansas Crime Laboratory for an autopsy.

The report says 50-year-old Lynn Geiling was watching the boy at the time of the attack and was able to get the dog off of him. She told investigators the dog attacked when it saw the boy throwing a tantrum.

Geiling's husband and son put the boy in a vehicle and met an ambulance, which took the boy to the hospital.

Hot Springs animal control says the dog was killed by a resident Monday.
