An infant died next to its distraught mother Thursday morning in Orange County, authorities said.
The 1-and-a-half-month-old baby was found unresponsive by its mother, whom it was sleeping next to in the family room of a Garden Grove home, according to the Garden Grove Police Department.
Paramedics arrived at the home, in the 12500 block of Adelle Street, at 2:28 a.m. but found the infant's heart had stopped and pronounced it deceased, police said.
