By DAILYMAIL.COM REPORTER

A six-year-old girl has died two days after she was viciously attacked by a pit bull mix that her family was watching for a friend.

Six-year-old Jaelah Smith, of Jacksonville, Florida, died two days after she was attacked by a pit bull that her family was watching for a friend on Sunday 

Jaelah Smith, of Jacksonville, Florida, died from her injuries just before 7pm on Tuesday after being placed on life support.

She was attacked by the pit bull, who had been left at the house by a family friend who went on vacation, around 10am on Sunday.

Jaelah’s brothers, aged seven and nine, were also in the home at the time of the attack but were not injured.

Neighbors said they heard screaming and saw Sheree Smith, Jaelah’s mother, carrying her unconscious body outside of the house on Sunday morning.

‘She begged, “Please somebody, call the police! Somebody help me!’ Timothy Hightower told WFTV.

Jaelah was unresponsive when police and paramedics arrived at the scene.
