Man Mauled To Death By His Own Dog In Front Of BBC Film Crew

A 41-year-old man died after being attacked by his own dog while a BBC TV crew interviewed him for a documentary.

The incident took place in North London and the dog, a Staffordshire bull terrier, has since been seized by police.

Scotland Yard said that the dog injured its owner at an address in Norman Close in Wood Green on March 20 - but the incident has only just been made public.

It happened at around 10:25pm and the man was rushed to hospital. Sadly, he was pronounced dead early on March 21.

The post-mortem examination took place at Haringey mortuary on March 24. They gave the cause of death as 'hypovolemic shock and damage to the airway consistent with a dog bite', according to police.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told The Sun: "Police were called at around 22:25hrs on Monday, 20 March, to a report of a man injured by a dog at an address in Norman Close, N22.

"Officers attended the scene along with the London Ambulance Service.

"The owner of the dog was taken to a north London hospital where he was pronounced dead at around 00:30hrs on Tuesday, 21 March.

"The man's death is not being treated as suspicious.

"Enquiries by police at Haringey continue to assist the coroner."

A BBC spokesperson added: "A crew making a BBC documentary were present - but not filming - at the time of the incident and called an ambulance. Given the ongoing inquiries, it would not be appropriate to comment further."
