Investigators are trying to determine how a baby died after emergency medical services tried to save her life.

On Wednesday, Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a 1-year-old baby girl who wasn’t breathing and died.

According to the CCSO report, law enforcement and EMS responded to a home off the 29000 block of Shell Creek Court in Cleveland, east of Punta Gorda in Charlotte County.

According to the report, the baby was not breathing, and Charlotte County EMS were performing CPR on her inside the car port of the home.

The baby’s father, Kenneth E. Adams, 33, was at the home, and the baby’s grandmother, Teresa Williams, 55, was there too. Both the father and grandmother were removed from the scene, while EMS tried to revive the baby.

Then, the baby was taken to Bayfront Health in Punta Gorda, where she was pronounced dead.

Thereafter, the home on Shell Creek became an active crime scene.

CCSO continues to investigate. The cause of the baby’s death is pending an autopsy.

The Department of Children & Families was contacted due to the baby’s death and due to the condition of three other children.
