MILWAUKEE -- A two-month-old infant girl was found unresponsive in an apartment on Milwaukee's northwest side early Monday morning. Investigators say the infant was sharing an adult-sized bed with her mother.

According to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Report, the mother of two-month-old Alexandria Platt fed the infant around 10:00 p.m. on November 10th. She laid the infant down for the night minutes later. Platt's mother found her unresponsive on the bed they were sharing around 4:25 a.m.

The infant's mother and her roommate performed CPR on the infant until emergency responders arrived. The mother told investigators she noticed fluid coming from her baby's nose and mouth.

The mother admitted to consuming Mike's Hard Lemonade the night before her infant died. She also reported being on prescription medications.
