The two dogs that mauled a 3-year-old New Jersey boy to death and seriously injured his mother were their neighbor’s unregistered pit bulls — which snuck into their backyard, according to reports on Wednesday.

The animals somehow got past a fence and into the yard of an adjacent home in Carteret, where the toddler and his mom were playing at around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, WABC reported.

The boy was airlifted to a hospital, where he died. His mother remained hospitalized Wednesday with serious injuries.

Shocking aerial footage from NBC4 showed first responders performing chest compressions on the tot as he was being taken to a helicopter on a gurney.

Authorities have not released the names of the victims.
