Two infant deaths in the Miami, Florida area are being investigated by police. One of the deaths, considered to be “sudden,” has very few details attached to it. Another case which occurred last Sunday is being blamed on the newborn sleeping with the parents.
Miami-Dade police are investigating the death of Ayla Cappas, who was almost 2 months old and didn’t wake up Sunday morning in her home in the area of Southwest 268th Street and 129th Avenue. According to the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s database, Ayla died around 2:55 a.m. Sunday.
The father, Alvaro Cappas, told Herald news partner CBS4 the child had been sleeping in the bed with her parents.
“I woke up in the morning and she wasn’t breathing,” Cappas said. “She was all pale and purple. I tried to give her CPR and she wouldn’t come back.”
