LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Faulkner County officials are attributing an infant’s death to last week’s tornado that killed 15 people in central Arkansas.

County spokesman David Hogue says Monday that a mother, who suffered injuries from last Sunday’s tornado, gave birth to a baby. Hogue says the newborn took a breath, and died.

Hogue says the baby’s death is attributed to the tornado because of the mother’s injuries. The infant’s exact time of death and how far the mother was along in her pregnancy were not immediately known.

Phone messages left with Faulkner County coroner Patrick Moore weren’t immediately returned Monday afternoon.
