Hays day care license suspended after child dies

HAYS, Kan. (AP) — The license of a Hays day care center is temporarily suspended while authorities investigate the cause of an 8-week-old infant’s death.

Hays Police Chief Don Scheibler says the infant died Saturday at a Wichita hospital. The child was hospitalized after emergency personnel went to Michelle M. Sarver’s home day care on Wednesday because the infant was not breathing.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment announced Monday that Sarver’s license was temporarily suspended.

The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1cxiOiL ) a suspension order says the child was put down for a nap on a bed, propped up by pillows and blankets. Sarver later found the infant on its stomach and unresponsive.

Scheibler says he sought the temporary suspension to err on the side of caution.
