RIDGEWAY, SC (WIS) - Deputies are investigating after a 6-week-old baby was found unresponsive in a Richland County home Sunday morning.

Richland County deputies said the child's parents found her unresponsive Sunday morning and called the baby's grandparents, who live in Lexington. The grandparents then made their way to the parents' home on Sease Road in Ridgeway.

When the grandparents got to the home at about 11 a.m. Sunday, that's when they decided to report the baby's death.

The Richland County coroner asked for deputies to investigate the child's death.

The name of the baby has not been released.

Investigators interviewed the parents and grandparents, but no one has been charged in the death. An autopsy is scheduled.
