Infant dies at Metro station

WASHINGTON – Metro Transit police were called to the L’Enfant Plaza station around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday morning after reports of an unresponsive baby.

Metro says a medical team performed CPR on the 3-month-old boy on the platform at the station, but the child was pronounced dead upon arrival at Children’s Hospital.

A witness says a woman with the infant and another young child got on a train at the Waterfront station on the Green line, when the baby got a bloody nose. Passengers gave the mother tissues and she soon started yelling that the baby was not breathing.

Witnesses say the train was stuck for a few minutes before opening its doors at L’Enfant plaza.
