TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - An infant was found unresponsive at an in-home daycare on Tucson's east side, according to Sgt. Kim Bay, Tucson police public information officer.
A worker at the daycare near East Golf Links and South Kolb roads found the child and went to a neighbor for assistance. The neighbor then called 911.
The 3-month-old boy was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
There were no signs of trauma on the baby, according to Sgt. Pete Dugan with TPD. He said foul play is not suspected.
There is no licensed facility at the home, according to records with Arizona Department of Health Services.
Any day care with 5 or more children at a time needs to be licensed with the state, according to AZDHS requirements. The state inspects unlicensed facilities after complaints or potential police activity.
Neighbors living on the same block as the in-home daycare said they've seen parents dropping off kids there for years but never considered reporting it.
