HUNTINGTON, Texas (AP) - Officials say a 2-month-old girl has died at an East Texas home as the woman with whom she was living ran an errand and left several other adults to watch the baby.

The Angelina County Sheriff’s Department says an autopsy was scheduled Monday on the infant, whose name wasn’t immediately released.

Sheriff Greg Sanches says an initial review indicates the baby apparently died of natural causes.

Sanches says the woman in whose care the child was entrusted had to pick someone up Saturday and left the sleeping child in the care of several family friends at a home near Huntington. One of the adults checked on the girl, noticed she wasn’t breathing and called 911.

Child Protective Services has been notified.

Huntington is about 120 miles northeast of Houston.
