ROCK HILL — A 3-month-old boy died Sunday after police say his parents noticed he was not breathing as he slept in their bed.
At about 11:30 a.m., police were called to a Hagins Street home after receiving word that a baby was unresponsive and not breathing, according to a Rock Hill police report.
By the time officers arrived, EMS and the Rock Hill Fire Department were already on scene and had taken the child to Piedmont Medical Center.
Police spoke with the parents, a 20-year-old woman and 19-year-old man, who told authorities they picked the child up from the womans sisters home early Sunday morning and returned home to go to sleep.
The boys mother told police the baby slept between her and his father on their queen-sized bed, the report states. Throughout the night, the baby would often roll over so his face was on the pillow, but he would move around and roll off of it.
The mother told police she woke up around 11:30 a.m. when she felt like something was wrong, the report states. She saw that her son was on the bed not breathing and called EMS.
The baby was pronounced dead in the hospitals emergency room, York County Coroner Sabrina Gast said.
Gasts office completed an autopsy on Monday, but did not release details. She said she does not suspect foul play and is not investigating the infants death as suspicious.
At this point, its still under investigation, she said.
Police will wait for autopsy results before determining whether charges will be filed, said Executive Officer Mark Bollinger, spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department.
