Police were called to a home near 83rd Avenue and Thunderbird Monday evening after a mother finds her toddler unresponsive. Amanda Jacinto with the City of Peoria says the mom put her twin children down for a nap and an hour later when she went to check on them the boy was unresponsive and stuck.
The child was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Jacinto says the child was in a toddler bed and there was a baby monitor in the room.
An investigation continues, but at this time Jacinto says it appears to be a tragic accident.
