Medical Examiner Investigates 6-Month-Old's Death

The parents said he was unconscious when they went to check on him

The medical examiner is trying to determine what killed a 6-month-old New Milford boy as he napped Wednesday.   

When the parents went to check on their infant son, he was unconscious and not breathing. 
When the police arrived, there were no signs of life. The emergency staff at New Milford Hospital momentarily revived him as they were preparing to transport him to Hartford Hospital for further care, police told the Danbury News Times.
Police Capt. Michael Mrazik told the Times that the Spanish-speaking family had put the child down for a nap and later found him not breathing. That is when they called police.
The department had to bring in an interpreter to question the parents.
The child showed no signs of apparent trauma according to the Times, but Mrazik said that there are "some circumstances that can't be explained."
Because of that, the State Police Major Crime Unit was called to the scene on West Street in New Milford. An autopsy will be preformed to try to determine a cause of death.
