The National Park Service says it’s investigating the death of a baby.

The infant died on Nov. 26 while he was on a camping trip with his family within Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

Rangers said at around 8:28 a.m. on Nov. 26, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area Interagency Communication Center received a call about the child who was unresponsive and not breathing near the 33 Hole Overlook.

While a man was boating in the area, he heard a woman screaming for help.  The man stopped his boat and came to her aid.  Rangers said the Good Samaritan did CPR with the mother of the child until units arrived at the scene and took over.

The victim could not be revived and was pronounced dead at 9:08 a.m.
The Clark County Medical Examiner will confirm the victim’s identity and cause of death at a later date.

The incident is still being investigated by the National Park Service Investigative Services Branch.
