A mother and her adult son were apparently mauled to death by their own dog in a flat in the northern German city of Hanover, police said on Wednesday.

Fire rescue workers captured the Staffordshire Terrier when they broke into the flat.

“Preliminary investigations by a forensic specialist indicate that the 52-year-old and her 27-year-old son were killed by the dog,” said police.

The woman’s 25-year-old daughter alerted authorities after she could not contact either of her two family members.

She spotted a lifeless body through the window of the flat.

“It currently remains unclear how the accident could come about,” said investigators.
