Triniti Harrell died in hospital after being attacked by her family's pet in the front yard of her home in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, last Monday.
Her mother, Miranda, called 911 when they attacked her and gave her a series of instructions to try to save her, but none worked.

For nine minutes, he begged the dispatcher to hurry up and send him help. The call begins when Harrell says the pet was "attacking" his daughter.
THE CALL TO 911
Mom: I need some help. My dog is attacking my daughter. Hurry, she is dying. Please, hurry up.
Carrier: Can you get something to try to get the dog out of it?
Can you try to get something to separate them? I have everyone I can get on the way to you.
(The dispatcher tells her to get a pan)
Go with him. Hit it right in the center of the top of your head. If you hit him enough, you'll knock him out.
Mom: I'm hitting it as hard as I can
Carrier: Can you run around the house and take a meat knife or something? Go into the house and get a knife, I'll tell you how to get it out of it.
Mom: I can not leave her here
Carrier: It will take you 30 seconds to run in the house and grab it
(The mother keeps yelling at the dog)
Dispatcher Madam, yelling at you is not going to change anything. I need you to find something sharp, and I'll explain how to get the dog out of it …
(Mom retrieves the knife)
Carrier: Cut it in the lower part of your neck. It will release the muscles of the jaw. You will have no choice but to let go.
Mom: I'm trying. The blade is not sharp enough.
Carrier: I need you to do anything you can do with that for that dog to get loose. The dog's life does not worry me at this time.
Hurry up, she is dying. Please hurry up, "she said.
Can you get something to try to get the dog out of it?
& # 39; Can you try to get something to separate them? "I have everyone I can direct them to," said the dispatcher.
The male operator told the mother to put a stick in the dog's mouth to try to separate them.
He then ordered the mother to use a shovel or pan to hit the animal and eliminate it.
& # 39; Dale with him. Hit it right in the center of the top of your head. "If you hit him hard enough, you'll knock him out," he said.
The mother replied that she was hitting the animal as hard as she could but it was not working.
It was then that the dispatcher ordered him to enter and retrieve a kitchen knife to cut the animal's neck.
Can you run around the house and take a meat knife or something?
"If you're going to run to the house and get a knife, I'll tell you how to get it out of it," he said.
The mother begged that he could not enter and leave the child alone, but he insisted: "It will take you 30 seconds to run inside the house and grab it," he said.
She ignored him and continued shouting at the dog, prompting him to say: "Madam, yelling at her that nothing will change.
"I need you to find something sharp, and I'll explain how to get rid of the dog."
When he finally went to look for the knife and bring it back to the outside, the dispatcher instructed him: "Cut it in the lower part of your neck."
You will release the muscles of your jaw.
Triniti's mother, Miranda Harrell, was the one who called 911. She is represented with the boy's father, Mike Gurganus.

& # 39; You will have no choice but to let it go & # 39;
Harrell said he was trying but the blade was not sharp enough.
