A Warrington family is mourning the loss of their 5-year-old boy, who died Saturday following a tragic incident involving their dog in the aftermath of last week's winter storm.

The boy was moved to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was under heavy sedation for the next several days before he passed away Saturday, according to his family. He had been heavily sedated since the accident, authorities said. But Warrington police Chief Daniel Friel said later an investigation determined the boy's airway had been cut off when the dog pulled at the child's scarf.

Police say the boy was playing outside with the family dog - a 1-year-old hound mix -0 when the child's mother saw the boy lying face down in the snow while the dog was pulling and tugging at the scarf, CBS Philadelphia reported. Arriving paramedics performed CPR on the boy before transporting him to Doylestown Hospital, then onto CHOP.

When she went outside, the boy's mother found him unconscious and unresponsive with the scarf "tight around his neck".

"His smile and boundless energy was electric. Above all else John loved his mom, dad, and big sister", the GoFundMe page says. As of 9 a.m. Monday, the community has donated more than $12,000 to help the Bruno family with medical and funeral expenses. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart", said Herbert.
