Infant dies in Ottawa County

Posted: Updated:
OTTAWA COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Office received a call Tuesday morning around 11 a.m. to Port Clinton Point Apartments in the 1200-block of Fremont Road for a 3-month-old infant who wasn't breathing.

North Central EMS and Bay Township Police responded to the call. CPR instructions were given to the 911 caller until the emergency crews arrived.

The baby was transported to Magruder Hospital, where the baby was pronounced deceased.

Detectives are currently investigating the death.

"Obviously anytime with a child's death, we always want to make sure that we have the cause of death pinned down," explained Ottawa County Sheriff Steve Levorchick. "Also, there were some inconsistencies that we just want to make sure that we cover all the bases and make sure that if the child's death is natural causes that we can prove that, or if there is another factor, we want to make sure we can prove that then."

An autopsy will be done by the Lucas County Coroner's Office, possibly Wednesday.

No other information is being released at this time.
