The North Port Police Department says a mom was breastfeeding her 5-month-old baby when she fell asleep. When she woke up, the baby was unresponsive and was unable to be revived.

NPPD says they, along with North Port Fire crews, responded to a call of an unconscious 5-month-old child at the 800 block of Minardi Street in North Port.

CPR was administered as 911 was called, but unfortunately, the child could not be revived.

The North Port Police Department is working with the Sarasota County Medical Examiner’s Office to conclude this investigation.
