A one-month old Marion baby died this (Wed) morning after his mother and he were sleeping in the same bed.
Marion Deputy Police Chief David Day says officers responded to a home in the 200-block of North Hill Street after receiving a call from the mother. The initial police report says the mother called 9-1-1 just before 8am after she woke up and realized her baby wasn’t breathing.
She told them she was holding the child then fell asleep.
The death is under investigation.
