Infant Dies After Days In Hospital

Police in southern Kentucky are looking into the death of a baby.

Police say they were called to a home on KY 552 in Laurel County last Thursday for a report of an unresponsive six-month-old.

Family members told police a 9-year-old child, who was carrying the baby, tripped and dropped the infant.

The baby was flown to Kentucky Children's Hospital in Lexington where he died on Sunday morning.

An autopsy has been done of the baby, but there's no word yet on the cause of death.

So far, no charges have been filed in the case.
