Le Roy PD reports there was no disturbance at location were baby was found not breathing
There was no disturbance at 72 Main St., Le Roy, prior to police arriving at the scene Sunday where a baby was found not breathing, Le Roy Police Chief Chris Hayward said in a statement this evening.
The 5-month-old infant was later pronounced dead.
Hayward confirmed that the initial information relayed to emergency responders was that a fight had taken place at the location but, he stated, "a review of the 9-1-1 call and subsequent investigation determined that no fight or any other type of disturbance occurred and the fact that it was dispatched in this manner appears to have been a miscommunication at the dispatch center."
A police officer arrived on scene shortly after the 5:13 p.m. call and found a 45-year-old woman who appeared to be unconscious and a 5-month-old child unresponsive and a bystander performing CPR.
CPR was provided until an ambulance arrived and took over medical care.
A preliminary autopsy failed to determine a cause of death. The investigation continues pending further test results.
