Police in Bangor are investigating the death of a baby Wednesday morning at a home on Center Street.

Sgt. Tim Cotton tells the Bangor Daily News a report of “a child in breathing distress” came in shortly after 9:00.

Firefighters, paramedics and police quickly arrived on the scene but they could not save the girl's life.

Cotton said anytime a child in Maine dies there’s always an investigation into the cause of death.

Cotton did not release the girl's age.
