Authorities investigate area infant deaths
(2007-03-22)
(WOUB) - Two children in our region are dead and the circumstances are remarkably similar.

Seven-month-old Aden Levering-Ruff of New Lexington died Tuesday. Three-month-old Ray Gayheart of McConnelsville died the same day.

Authorities are investigating and autopsies are being performed.

McConnelsville Police Chief Rocky Woodburn says Gayheart's parents called and when the ambulance got to their home, the baby was unconscious in a chair.

New Lexington Police Chief Jeffrey Newlon says emergency responders were called because the child was "unresponsive" and resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.
