KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Detectives are investigating the death of a 3-month-old girl but believe the death to be natural.

Kansas City police were dispatched about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday to Children's Mercy Hospital to meet firefighters who were transporting the infant.

Firefighters said the baby was not breathing when they arrived at a home in the 5300 block of Winner Road on the city's northeast side. A short time later, the baby was pronounced dead.

"There is nothing indicating anything other than natural causes at this point," said Capt. Tye Grant.

Investigators said they are waiting for the cause of death to be determined before proceeding any further.
