Child on family stroll died after dog attack.
The pleasant weather of the season had drawn the father and son down to the banks of the North Shore where a number of other locals had come out to stroll in the sunshine.
It was also the day of the Cheshire Cavalry review whose members had lined up ready for inspection and to be observed by an intrigued general public.
What should have been a most pleasant afternoon turned sickeningly sour when, as if from nowhere, a stray dog appeared on the scene and inflicted Master Woods with a truly vicious mauling.
Immediate care was given and once in hospital the child was closely monitored by doctors. The dog, however, was found to be rabid and the child died an agonising death from infection several days later. The canine was undoubtedly destroyed.
