CHICAGO (AP) - State officials are investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy at a north side Chicago home daycare.

WMAQ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2gSECgH) that officers were called at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday to a home daycare in the Rogers Park neighborhood for an unresponsive child.

Officials say the Rogers Park resident was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston where he was pronounced dead one hour later.

An autopsy Thursday did not rule on a cause of death.

Illinois Department of Children and Family Services spokeswoman Alissandra Calderon says the agency is investigating allegations of neglect against the provider.



Calderon says the provider is licensed but has voluntarily stopped caring for other children until the investigation is concluded.
