A 5-month-old baby girl was found unresponsive by her mother this morning.

CNC3 has been told that the child's mother, who is 13-years-old, lives with her aunt at Brazil Road, San Raphael.

The mother last breastfed the baby at 2:30 am and then fell asleep next to her on their bed.

But when she awoke at 7 am the baby was unresponsive.

The baby was rushed to the Arima hospital but was pronounced dead.

Police are awaiting an autopsy scheduled for tomorrow to determine what would have caused the baby's death.

The Child Protection Unit is currently engaged in a case involving the teenaged mother.
