Police investigating death of 4-month-old baby

Officials have not yet determined the cause of death for a 4-month-old Pacifica boy who died Monday, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said Tuesday.

An autopsy on the infant was conducted and completed Tuesday afternoon, Foucrault said, but additional tests have to be finished. The results of those tests are not expected for another two or three weeks.

The circumstances surrounding the death of the infant are also being investigated by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office and Pacifica Police Department, which responded to the incident first with medical personnel, Pacifica police Capt. Fernando Realyvasquez said.

Police responded at 1 p.m. Monday to a home on the 200 block of Brighton Road, after a frantic woman told them her child was not breathing, Realyvasquez said. Medical personnel examined the infant, found he was not breathing, and took him to Seton Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead shortly afterward, Realyvasquez said.

“There aren’t many details now because our investigation has just started,” Realyvasquez said.

Officials had no further information on the child or his mother.
