DONA ANA COUNTY- Sheriff's deputies have confirmed that a one-year-old child was found unresponsive in a Dona Ana County home around 10:00 a.m. today.
The mother found the boy faced-down in the couch, then called police. Attempts to resuscitate the boy were unsuccessful.
The parent of the boy are from Oregon and are in town to work for a visiting fair.
The child was pronounced dead on arrival.
Investigators say the child’s body will be sent for an autopsy to determine the cause of death, and do not believe the boy died as a result of criminal activity.
