Police investigate death of 2-month-old girl


Big Island police are investigating the death of an infant.

At 5:44 a.m. Monday, Kona patrol officers responded to a home on the 74-4000 block of Mamalahoa Highway in Holualoa to a report of an unresponsive baby girl.

When they arrived, the child’s mother reported that she had found her 2-month-old baby in bed unresponsive, police said.

The mother had called 9-1-1 and had been instructed to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation until Fire Department rescue personnel arrived.

Fire Department personnel then continued resuscitation efforts and took the baby to Kona Community Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 6:22 a.m.

Police do not suspect foul play. They have ordered an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.
