Duncan Police & DHS investigate possible child neglect

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN,Okla.__Duncan police are working with the Department of Human Services to investigate a possible case of child neglect. 

Police were called to a home on Mulberry Avenue Friday afternoon where a father said he found his baby not breathing after she rolled off a pillow on the floor. 

The infant was taken to Duncan Regional Hospital where paramedics were able to stabilize her before transferring her to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Investigators said the child has a prior medical history that could have caused the episode. 

The girl's father told 7NEWS doctors believe the baby may be diabetic and suffering from pneumonia. Police are waiting for all tests to come back before closing their investigation.
