The two-year-old boy who died after falling into a pit of African wild dogs on Sunday bled to death after he was mauled by the animals, a medical examiner said.
Police and officials at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium are continuing to investigate the death of Maddox Derkosh after he fell from a wooden railing overlooking the painted dogs exhibit.
Witnesses say he had 'no chance' of surviving after falling 11-feet into the pit while his horrified parents Jason and Elizabeth Derkosh looked on helpless.
Desperate rescue attempts by zookeepers and armed police officers could not deter the 11 aggressive beasts as they savagely attacked the two-year-old.
Barbara Baker, CEO and president of the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium said there is a net below the rail, but the boy bounced off it and into the enclosure.
