Two infants are currently in the care of Paris Regional Health after police, EMS and firefighters responded to two separate calls of infants not breathing on Thursday.
The first call came in at 8:28 a.m. and first responders were dispatched to the 600 block of NE 34 Street for Cardiac-Respiratory Arrest.
A Paris police officer was the first to arrive on the scene and immediately started CPR after finding the infant unresponsive and not breathing.
Paris EMS arrived and transported the infant to Paris Regional Health, where she remains in their care.
Investigators and Child Protective Services will do a thorough investigation of Abandon-Endanger Child.
Police later responded to a second call for EMS Assist around 10:27 p.m. in the 300 block of Stone Avenue, where dispatch advised that an infant was not breathing and CPR was in progress.
The Paris Fire Department and Paris EMS personnel arrived and treated the infant in the ambulance, later transferring the infant to Paris Regional Health for continued care.
According to reports, the mother gave conflicting stories to EMS and hospital staff; therefore the officer completed a report of Abandon-Endanger Child Imminent Danger Bodily Injury for investigators and Child Protective Services to thoroughly investigate.
