RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- "He's breathing and he's blinking his eyes but I need...I don't want him to die," Chantel McGrew told a 911 dispatcher Friday morning.

On Tuesday, The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office released the graphic 911 call of the Ridgeville mother who came home to find her 2-month-old son had been killed by a friend's dog.

"I had to take my 7-year-old to the doctor and my husband was home with my two boys," McGrew said. "I come home and my son, my two-and-a-half-year-old and my two-month-old were awake. And my husband was somewhat awake."

When the dispatcher asked if her husband Quintin knew what happened, McGrew said that he had been sleeping.

"I have a...dogsitting a dog and I believe the dog went after my son because the dog has blood all over him."

McGrew also told the dispatcher she believed her two-and-a-half-year-old got the baby out of swing he had been left in.

"Is there a way that they can, probably step on it - I don't want my son to die - he's still breathing, right guys? Yes, he's still breathing," McGrew said. " I just hope that they can fix him. I can't lose my baby, that's my last one, I can't have no more."

Two month old Aiden McGrew was later pronounced dead at Summerville Medical Center.

On Monday, The Dorchester County Coroner ruled the infant bleed to death and listed the manner of death as homicide. The Dorchester County Sheriff L.C. Knight has not said if charges will be filed in the case.

On Tuesday, the sheriff's office turned the dog over to animal control. No word yet on if the dog will be put down.
