Infant’s death in SW Miami-Dade triggers investigation

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - The death of a baby girl in a Southwest Miami-Dade home has sparked a police investigation, Sunday.

According to Miami-Dade Police, the infant died along Southwest 268th Street and 129th Avenue.

7News cameras captured relatives crying outside the home after officers taped off the scene.

The girl’s father said he got up, and that’s when he and the girl’s mother noticed she wasn’t breathing.

“She goes ‘Babe, the baby is not moving.’ She feels cold, and when I go to move her, her face is like bluish, pale, so I proceeded to give her CPR you know, how we were taught, because we took CPR classes for the baby,” said the father, Alvaro Cappas. “We did everything. She showed a little, like a sound, it was just air escaping from her lungs, so we started kind of patting her on the chest to see if I could get her to wake up — they told us to do that. Kept continuing CPR, nothing is happening.”

The child’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office to determine how she died.
