WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in West Fargo say head trauma is the likely cause of death for a six-month-old baby boy who was airlifted to Minneapolis this week after being found unresponsive at a home daycare.

Owen Skodje (SKOE’-gee) of Fargo died at Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis after he was on life support.

Detective Tim Runcorn tells KFGO-AM that authorities don’t yet know the circumstances surrounding the boy’s injuries.

The home daycare where the boy was found is run by Darcy Anderson, who doesn’t care for enough children to be licensed.

Police were called to Anderson’s West Fargo daycare on Monday after receiving a report of a baby who wasn’t breathing. The daycare provider was performing CPR on the infant when officers arrived.

Runcorn says police and Cass County Social Services are investigating.
