Cancun, Q.R. — A six-week old baby was found dead inside a Cancun home early Wednesday morning. The discovery was made around 7:00 a.m. in SM 234 of the city when the parents called Emergency 911 for help.
The female child was found not breathing by her mother. Emergency services were called, however, when medical personnel arrived at the home, the child was already deceased.
Paramedics reported that when attempting to apply first aid care to the baby, she was found without vital signs. The police of Quintana Roo were informed of the death, adding that a probable cause could have been bronchoaspiration.
Neighbors and family members have told police that the couple who live in the home suffer from addiction issues and that they were heard arguing the night before, possibly leaving the child unattended.
