LYNDON, Kan. (AP) – A northeast Kansas sheriff’s office is investigating the death of a baby who stopped breathing at a day care facility.
Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn said in a news release that the infant died earlier this week while being taken to a hospital.
The baby was identified as 4-month-old Brody Johnston, of Scranton. The sheriff says his parents wanted the public to know their donation of their son’s organs have saved the lives of two other infants.
An autopsy has been performed, but the sheriff said Thursday the cause of death has not been determined. Osage County health officials closed the day care for two days while they investigated.
