SPENCER, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in northwest Iowa are investigating the death of a 15-month-old child.

Paramedics were called to a home in Spencer Friday evening, and the child was taken to a hospital. The baby died at the hospital.

Spencer Police Chief Mark Lawson says there weren’t any obvious signs of trauma, but police are investigating the death because of the child’s age.

The baby’s name wasn’t immediately released.

An autopsy will be performed on the baby to help determine what caused the death.
