COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Richland County Coroner Gary Watts is hoping to educate parents and caregivers about ways to ensure that babies sleep safely.

Watts has scheduled a news conference on Tuesday at Lamar Outdoor Advertising in Columbia. He says he’s giving out information on his office’s new program to train and educate caregivers of infants.

Watts says many child fatalities are directly related to unsafe sleep practices.

The coroner also says he’s going to start holding free workshops on safe baby sleep practices. More information on those events will be released later.
