THIS is the awesome moment a 911 operator is told to scream at her pitbull's throat as it mauls her baby to death in her front yard.
In a harrowing audio recording, Miranda Harrell is about to get home and grab a weapon like a steak knife, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
After the mum replies that she can not leave her one-year-old daughter, Triniti, alone, he adds: "It will take you 30 seconds to run in the house and grab it."
Moments later, after Miranda gets hold of a knife, the dispatcher says, "He's going to let go.
"It's going to release his jaw muscles."
She then yells back: "This knife is too dull.
"Please get somebody now!"
In response, the crews are rushing to the scene in Rocky Mount, NC, "as fast as they can".
Tragic Triniti died in hospital just days after the attack – which was only stopped when at Edgecombe County deputy shot the hound.
Cops said the youngster had been playing outside with her when the six-year-old pitbull started thrashing around, WRAL.com reports.
In the call, you can hear screaming: "Help me, she's dying."
The operator then asks: "Can you get hold of anything – a pot, pan, shovel, anything you've got around your house? Hit him with it."
He tells her to bash the dog "right in the middle of the top of his head", adding: "If you hit him hard enough, you'll knock him out."
Heartbreakingly, Miranda yells back: "He will not stop!"
The operator continues: "Find something and hit him with it."
The mum responds: "I'm hitting him as hard as I can."
Finally he tells her to get a knife and slit the dog's throat.
However, despite her efforts to cut her dog, Miranda finds the blade "too dull".
