Two month old baby suffocates


In bed with parents

A two month old baby died Tuesday after he apparently slipped down a pillow and suffocated while sleeping in the same bed with his parents, Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown said. The tragic death occurred at 34 June Avenue in Pelzer. It is the third death of its kind in Anderson County this year, according to McCown.

McCown said the practice of sleeping with an infant is dangerous becasue an adult can shift their weight while sleeping and cut off a young child’s air supply.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the death and an autopsy will be complete this week.
