Cause of death not suspicious

On Thursday, Aug. 8, a four-month-old infant was found deceased at a local day care center at roughly 3 p.m. Deputies with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office as well as crew from the Park City Fire District responded.

A LifeFlight medical helicopter dispatched and lifesaving efforts were attempted with no success. Summit County Sheriff’s Capt. Justin Martinez said that "nothing appears suspicious" related to the infant’s death.

An autopsy will be performed to discover the cause of death.
