10-month-old infant dies in co-sleeping incident
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirms a 10-month-old girl died in a co-sleeping incident on September 11th. The medical examiner's report says the infant died while sharing the bed with her three-year-old brother.
Emergency responders were called to the scene near 29th and Villard around 2:40 p.m., Wednesday afternoon. The mother's boyfriend put the children down for a nap. He fell asleep during this time, but woke up so he could pick up another child from school. When he went to wake up the children, he found that the 10-month-old infant was cold to the touch. He called 911.
The medical examiner's officer has ruled this as a co-sleeping death.
