Baby sleeping with mother is electrocuted


The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's office says an infant girl is electrocuted while sleeping with her mother.

The medical examiner's report says 3-month-old Diamond Nicole McDuffie came in contact with a baseboard heater, a metal bed frame and a frayed extension cord with an exposed wire at a Milwaukee apartment.

Authorities say the infant was found wedged between the bed and a wall after sleeping with her mother and another infant Friday. The medical examiner says the cause of death is accidental electrocution.
