Evansville Police Department was dispatched this morning to the 400 block of East Buena Vista regarding a two year old not breathing. When the first officer arrived to the scene they found the child unresponsive and started CPR on the child, before the Evansville Fire Department arrived to the scene.

After several live-saving attempts were not successful, the child was confirmed dead at the scene.

The child's father who was at the scene, told police that he put his daughter to bed around 9:30 p.m the night before, and when he went to check on her in the morning, he found her unresponsive.

The investigation is currently ongoing.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
