Angwin, CA

Napa County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the death of 10-month-old baby girl left inside a vehicle in Angwin on Friday afternoon.

As of Friday evening, little information was available about the baby’s death.

Around 4 p.m., deputies and firefighters responded to a medical aid in the 300 block of College Avenue.

When they arrived on scene, the baby had been taken inside the residence, sheriff’s Sgt. Doug Pace said.

The baby was not breathing, Pace said.

“The mother and several family members were doing CPR on the baby. They continued CPR for about 30 minutes,” he said.

The baby was taken to St. Helena Hospital by ambulance, where she was pronounced dead, Pace said.

“The baby had been left in the car,” he said. “I don’t know if the College Avenue residence is where the family lives. The parents are the ones who called 911.”

Pace said as of Friday evening no one had been arrested.

“We are trying to determine if the baby was forgotten in the car. It’s very early to make any firm statements,”  Pace said.
