The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a three-month-old that occurred on Monday, October 2.
Deputies were called at approximately 10:30 a.m. Monday morning to the home of Camey Raven, of 18056 Forest Hills Drive in Prairieville, after receiving a 911 call in reference to an unresponsive child.
The three-month-old was transported to Baton Rouge General Hospital but later was pronounced deceased, according to Sheriff Jeff Wiley.
It was learned that the three-month-old was fighting a cold and the daycare staff put the child down for a nap and was later found unresponsive. The day care had ten children and five workers present at the time of the incident.
This investigation is ongoing and an autopsy is pending.
