UPDATE: Kenosha Police investigating death of 2-year-old at in-home daycare
KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Kenosha Police Department is investigating the death of a 2-year-old boy.
The police department responded to a home near 23rd and Lincoln around 6:53 p.m. on Wednesday for an unresponsive child.
According to neighbors, the home operates as a daycare. "She come running over hysterically, baby not breathing, might be not breathing," said David Alisauskas. "A little later we found out the boy was dead."
Authorities are calling the death suspicious.
"They attempted life-saving measures which were not successful. When the fire department arrived, they determined that the child was deceased," said Lt. James Beller of the Kenosha Police Department.
According to the YoungStar website by Wisconsin's Department of Children and Families, it doesn't appear to be a licensed daycare.
Parents who have left their kids to be cared for at the home said they're in a state of shock. "That's awful, that's terrible. I'm so glad I didn't bring him today. Oh my God," said Abigail Bonner.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Kenosha Police at 262-605-5203.
