MEDIA RELEASE

Hawaiʻi Island police are investigating the death of an infant as a coroner’s inquest.

At 5:44 a.m. Monday (February 25), Kona patrol officers responded to a home on the 74-4000 block of Māmalahoa Highway in Hōlualoa 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.

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.
