February 17, 2010 An English infant was pronounced dead at the scene early last Friday after emergency responders were called to a home on South Riddle Road.
According to a press release issued by the Indiana State Police, the infant, Sebasten Morgan, who was born on Jan. 3, fell asleep with his father, David Morgan, in the father's bed at about 1 a.m. At approximately 4 a.m., the child's mother, Mary Blevins, checked on the infant and found him unresponsive.
Blevins called 911 and attempted to give the infant CPR and to clean out his mouth with an aspirator while waiting for an ambulance. However, the infant had already died when Crawford County EMS arrived, according to the report.
Indiana State Police Det. Phil Stowers, the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, Crawford County Coroner and the Department of Family and Children responded to the scene to conduct an investigation.
Crawford County Coroner Chris Brown said an autopsy was completed in Louisville but the results of the autopsy are pending until toxicology results are back. Brown said that running toxicology tests are standard procedure.
Stowers said the case is being treated as a death investigation.
