STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP)– Stamford police are investigating the death of an 8-month-old baby girl who was reported unconscious at a hotel.
Police say the infant’s mother told them the girl was found on a pillow between a bed and the wall.
Police were called to the Crowne Plaza hotel shortly after 7 a.m. on Wednesday. The mother told police the baby must have fallen out of the bed at some point during the night and she called for help when she noticed the girl was not breathing.
The father said he was sleeping in another bed and was awakened by screams.
Medics attempted to revive the baby before she was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.
Police said a second child, the couple’s 2-year-old son, was sleeping in the same bed as the mother and is unharmed.
The parents, who were not identified, told police they were visiting Connecticut from Ohio.
