8-Month-Old Boy Dies After Being Trapped in Wexford County

State Police say an 8-month-old baby boy suffocated after he got trapped between the mattress and the wall.

It happened yesterday at a home in Clam Lake Township.

Troopers say the boy was laying in an adult sized bed and surrounded by pillows to prevent him from rolling out, but he still managed to get free and died.

The incident remains under investigation.

Parents are encouraged to avoid bumpers, blankets and pillows in the sleeping area.
