Indiana State Police are investigating the death of an infant in Mt. Vernon. 

 

The ISP says Posey County Dispatch received a call from a Mt. Vernon mother regarding her 13-week-old boy who was not breathing just after noon Thursday.

In a release, police said the mother performed C.P.R. until Posey County EMS arrived and continued life-saving measures.

The child was rushed to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy was conducted Thursday evening at the Vanderburgh County Morgue, but the manner and cause of death were still pending.

Police said they didn’t suspect foul play.

The child’s name has not been released.
