Authorities in Elizabethton are investigating the death of a baby at Lynnwood Apartments on Bluefield Avenue. According to Elizabethton Police Chief Jason Shaw, officers were called along with the Carter County Emergency and Rescue Squad this week to a report of a child in cardiac arrest. Dispatch informed officers and EMS that the mother woke up and found the child not breathing. CPR was given to the baby. But lifesaving medical attempts didn’t work. There is an autopsy scheduled.
