The nature of the child’s death, as well as an identity, have not been released. A neighbor who says she knew the mother and baby says the baby was a boy.
“She came up and was crying,” Stephanie Tazel said. “I was hugging her and she told me that her baby stopped breathing.”
The Beaver County District Attorney says his office is investigating the death.
Beaver County 911 confirmed the coroner and police officers were on the scene. Detectives were called to the scene shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
“We saw an ambulance go by,” recounted Anna Mabin, who lives nearby. “Then we heard the girl screaming. I just wanted to hug her.”
The Beaver County coroner has yet to release any information about the child’s death
