NOTE: An 11 year old girl, her mother and Zuri Whitehead, a 2 month old girl, were on a couch downstairs when the mother fell asleep at about 3 AM Friday, February 6, 2015. The mother was awakened less than an hour later by her daughter, who was holding the badly injured infant. Apparently the 11 year old took the infant upstairs and when she returned downstairs, she woke her mother to tell her something was wrong with the baby. The infant was bleeding and her head was badly swollen. The 11 year old’s mother immediately called 911. Zuri was flown to a children’s trauma center in Cleveland, where she died during surgery.
