Evansville Police Department was dispatched this morning to the 400 block of East Buena Vista regarding a two year old not breathing. When the first officer arrived to the scene they found the child unresponsive and started CPR on the child, before the Evansville Fire Department arrived to the scene.

After several live-saving attempts were not successful, the child was confirmed dead at the scene.

The child's father who was at the scene, told police that he put his daughter to bed around 9:30 p.m the night before, and when he went to check on her in the morning, he found her unresponsive.

The investigation is currently ongoing.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
