An infant suffered serious personal injuries at a Windsor, Colorado home day care center and was placed in critical condition. The police responded to a morning call of an infant not breathing at the 600 block of Buckhorn Mountain Court.
When the police arrived at the scene, 35-year-old Garrett Moore was performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the infant who was 11-months old. Windsor Police Chief John Michaels said that Moore had placed the child in a playpen in another room for a nap while he made lunch for the other children. The baby was left alone for about 30 to 45 minutes before Moore went back to check, said Michaels. Allegedly, the baby had trapped its head under the playpen mattress, which had restricted her airflow. According to the police report, Moore immediately called 911, and began performing CPR on the child who was later airlifted to Medical Center of the Rockies.
Michaels said that the Colorado day care center was registered with both the town and the state. At the time of the incident there were 12 children at the day care, and Moore was the only adult. Michaels said that the police are working with the appropriate entities to investigate the incident further. For more information, see Windsor infant in critical condition after daycare mishap.
