When CPR failed to revive Bruno, he was taken unconscious to Doylestown Hospital and later transferred to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was placed under "heavy sedation", according to The Intelligencer. Police say the child's mother looked out and saw him lying face-down in the snow with the dog tugging at the scarf around the boy's neck.

Police initially thought the child had collapsed from cardiac arrest while playing with the 18-month-old hound. She untied the scarf, which police say was tight around her son's neck, carried him into the house, and immediately called 911. By 1:45 p.m. on Monday, $16,010 was raised, surpassing its $5,000 goal.
