— A 3-month-old infant died Tuesday of accidental positional asphyxiation after its 23-year-old mother fell asleep while breast feeding, accidentally smothering the child, police said.

An autopsy has been completed, but the cause of death is tentative until toxicology reports are completed.

Child Protective Services is helping the family and two other young siblings.
