Several Officers responded to the location of the Incident, which was in the area of 50 E 480 N. Upon arrival they found the infant was not breathing and CPR was being performed. Paramedics arrived on scene and tended to an 11 month old female infant. Life Flight was requested and responded and the infant was transported by air to DRMC, in extreme critical condition.
