Baby girl suffocates after mother suffers medical condition

| No Comments

A baby girl died in Boyd after her mother suffered a medical condition that caused her to fall on top of her child, the Star Tribune said.

Authorities were called to the home in rural western Minnesota, where they found 28-year-old Joyce Whitmore unresponsive and on top of her 15-day-old baby, Skylar Shipley.

Police said the baby suffocated, but both were taken to the Dawson hospital before the baby was pronounced dead. Whitmore was airlifted to another hospital while in serious condition.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the incident, but no foul play is suspected.
