One neighbor told ABC11 he heard a loud thump outside and found a mom screaming for help next to the child. The neighbor said he called 911 and ambulance and police arrived shortly after.
"I heard like a splatter and screaming. I just came out to see what the commotion was about. I just found a toddler like right there on the (ground)," said a neighbor who asked to be identified as Ryan. "He was unconscious, blood was just coming out his mouth and he was breathing in a weird way."
Ryan said the child's mother was inconsolable. "She just kept screaming, like 'Call 911, call for an ambulance, call for anything.' So I just picked up my phone and called."
Neighbors also said the child was a 2-year-old boy.
