MIDVALE, Utah — The toddler son of a Midvale police officer has been flown to the hospital after the family's dog -- which failed out of training to become a police dog -- locked on to the child's head.

The boy was alone with the dog in the backyard of his home on Wildberry Circle in Kearns when the dog attacked.

The boy was unconscious when his mother called for help, and he has been flown to Primary Children's Medical Center in "extremely critical" condition, said Lt. Don Hutson of the Unified Police Department.
