Updated 6:28 p.m.: The daycare in question has been reported to be unlicensed, and it was a home daycare.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office sent out a media release on Monday, October 2, saying they are investigating the death of a three-month-old that occurred on the same day.
According to APSO, deputies were called at approximately 10:30 a.m. Monday morning to the home of Camey Raven, of 18056 Forest Hills Drive in Prairieville, after receiving a 911 call in reference to an unresponsive child.
The three-month-old was transported to Baton Rouge General Hospital but later pronounced deceased, according to Sheriff Jeff Wiley.
APSO reported that the child was fighting a cold, and the daycare staff put the child down for a nap. The child was later found unresponsive. The day care had ten children and five workers present at the time of the incident.
The name of the day care center was not released. The investigation is ongoing, and an autopsy is pending.
