5-month old baby dies; autopsy ordered

A five-month-old baby boy is dead and La Horquetta Police are investigating the circumstances under which he died.

The mother of little Samir Hospedales told police that she gave him a bottle of formula at around 2 am Thursday and returned to bed. The family lives on John Boodoo Lane, Brazil.

The woman said when she got up around 6 am, she noticed that her baby was lying still and not responding to her. She also noticed his lips were blue and immediately contacted an ambulance.

They arrived around 7:30am and took the baby to the Arima Health Facility where he was declared dead around 8 am.

An autopsy is expected to be done today to determine the cause of the child’s death.
