A one-year-old girl died on Thursday after staff at a daycare center were unable to wake her up following nap time.
Police said the girl had taken a nap alongside about a dozen other children in the classroom. At 4 p.m., emergency services received a call from an employee saying, “There’s a girl here who has gone very pale and we can’t wake her up.”
Emergency services personnel rushed to the scene and found the girl in a state of cardiopulmonary arrest. She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
According to police, there were no external signs of injury and the girl was not known to be suffering from any illnesses. Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances that led to her death.
