A 62-year-old man died of a cardiac arrest after being mauled by his son's dog on Monday, May 23.

Keven Jones had offered to help look after his son's five pet dogs, including three American Bullys, while he went to Wembley for a football match.

On May 23, Jones was in the kitchen at his son’s home in Wrexham, Wales, when one of the dogs, a two-year-old male American Bully called Cookie, "got him" on the leg.

His son's partner, 28-year-old Chanel Fong, said she heard him telling the dog: "Get off me."

Fong rushed into the kitchen, to tell Cookie to get down - but then spotted blood pouring from Jones’ leg.

Following the incident, Chanel described the horrific ordeal on Facebook.

She wrote: "I heard Kev say get off me Cookie… so I went into the kitchen, told Cookie to get down which he did."

"Anyone who has come into contact with Cookie knows how much of a big fat head play boy he is."

"He’s not aggressive in the slightest."

"Just thinks he’s still a small pup and bounces around rather than walk..."

She added: "Kev said he’s got me there and as I looked down there was blood pumping from Kev’s leg."

"I grabbed Cookie's blanket from his crate to try and keep the wound from bleeding. I carried him to the sofa and called the ambulance."

"Kev was with me but unresponsive, he grabbed my shoulder and told me he was going."

"I told him he wasn’t and the call handler told me to lie him on the floor and do compressions. Seven minutes it took for the ambulance service to get to us. It felt like I was doing compressions for an hour."

"I want to thank North Wales ambulance service, air ambulance, North Wales Police, and their special dog handling team."

"But after working on Keven for 45 mins he didn’t take another breath."

Following the incident, the American Bulldog was euthanized.

"Today has been the worst day of my life," Chanel added.

"I have had to watch two men who I love so much take their last breath."

A police spokeswoman said: "The dog was securely contained at the property and was euthanized by a vet."

"Other dogs kept at the property will be temporarily kennelled whilst enquiries are ongoing."
