PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A day care in Philadelphia has been shut down by the state after the death of a baby girl, citing “gross incompetence.”

A state health agency’s report issued Thursday says conditions at Sisters Childcare Center in the Franklinville section presented “serious danger to the life and health of the children.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/1IYnKhy ) Pennsylvania Department of Human Services shut the facility on Thursday, a day after the child died.

The agency’s report says staff knew the 10-month-old girl wasn’t well when she was dropped off but didn’t give her “additional care or supervision” for hours.

It says when she became unresponsive Wednesday afternoon no one called 911 or gave proper CPR. Instead, a staffer performed CPR while carrying the child the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police haven’t released a cause of death.
