The baby had been delivered at a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, where Jackson’s city hall had closed and police had sealed off an area of the city.
A baby monitor was found nearby, and a witness told the news outlet that it appeared the baby was not breathing, and that it was likely the result of a caesarean section.
According to the Jackson Post, police later confirmed the baby had a breechsection.
It’s unclear what led to the breech section, and the infant was removed from the hospital, but Jackson’s mayor told the local newspaper that it happened “just after 4 p.m. local time.”
Jackson’s florists said they were shocked to receive the news of the breeching of the baby, but said they have no information to suggest that it’s related to any issues with the delivery.
