      Funeral held for child killed in dog attack

      Family and friends of a child killed in a dog attack attended his funeral Sunday in Pell City.

      5-year-old John Harvard died last weekend after his neighbor's dog attacked him in his driveway. His 9-year-old brother tried to save him.

      His funeral was held at 2 p.m. at New Hope Baptist Church.

      Harvard's parents told ABC 33/40 Friday, he was the "light of their lives."

      The investigation is ongoing, and no charges have been filed.{}
