There was no disturbance at 72 Main St., Le Roy, prior to police arriving at the scene Sunday where a baby was found not breathing, Le Roy Police Chief Chris Hayward said in a statement this evening.
The 5-month-old infant was later pronounced dead.
Hayward confirmed that the initial information relayed to emergency responders was that a fight had taken place at the location but, he stated, "a review of the 9-1-1 call and subsequent investigation determined that no fight or any other type of disturbance occurred and the fact that it was dispatched in this manner appears to have been a miscommunication at the dispatch center."
A police officer arrived on scene shortly after the 5:13 p.m. call and found a 45-year-old woman who appeared to be unconscious and a 5-month-old child unresponsive and a bystander performing CPR.
CPR was provided until an ambulance arrived and took over medical care.
A preliminary autopsy failed to determine a cause of death. The investigation continues pending further test results.
