8-Month-Old Boy Accidentally Dies in Stroller

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police say it appears an 8-month-old boy's death over the weekend was an accident. 

Officers say Benjamin Momotok's mother put him in the stroller on Saturday for about 30 minutes to an hour, and when she checked on the boy, he wasn't breathing. 

Police say he apparently slid down in the stroller and a crossbar blocked his airway.

Benton County Coroner John Hansens says autopsy results are pending, but the coroner says he saw no signs of abuse.
