Officials investigate death of Norton baby

Authorities are investigating the death of a 3 ½-month boy from Norton who died at a Rhode Island hospital after being rushed Wednesday night to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, according to the office of Bristol District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter.

The infant died Thursday at about 3:30 p.m. at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, said Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Sutter. He said the death is not considered suspicious at this time.

The boy was taken by ambulance to Sturdy Memorial after officials received a 911 call at about 10:08 p.m. on Wednesday about a baby in distress, Miliote said. The boy was deemed to be in critical condition when he arrived there and was transported to Hasbro Children’s Hospital at about 10:45 p.m., Miliote said.

An autopsy is set to be performed on the baby to determine the cause of death, Miliote said. He declined to disclose the child’s name.

The state Department of Children and Families is also investigating, said Cayenne Isaksen, an agency spokeswoman. The family has not been involved with state child welfare officials before, Miliote said.

The baby had a twin sister, according to Miliote.
