Police and medics were called to a Layton home around 3:30 p.m. Sunday when a father discovered that his son's right hand was bitten off by a neighboring dog, according to Layton Fire Battalion Chief Jason Cook.
The dog bite amputated the boy's hand from between the elbow and wrist to the entire hand, Cook said.

In a tweet, the Layton City Fire department confirmed that the boy was airlifted to the Primary Children's Hospital in a stable condition and required surgical intervention.
