COON RAPIDS, Minn. - Anoka County investigators are looking into the death of an infant at a daycare in Coon Rapids Wednesday.

Anoka County Sheriff's Department spokesman Paul Sommer says the daycare provider, whose home is on the 10600 block of  Drake street, put the 8-month-old male infant down for a nap at 1 p.m.

When the provider returned to wake the child up at 3 p.m. the boy was not breathing.

The provider called 911 and the baby was transported to Mercy Hospital where the child was pronounced dead. There were no obvious signs of trauma but an autopsy will be conducted.  

Sommer says the daycare provider is cooperating with investigators.
