THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

The Thomas County Sheriff's Office and the GBI are waiting on results from the crime lab to determine what caused the death of a child Wednesday afternoon.

EMS responded to an unresponsive toddler at a home on Swanson Road around 10:30 in the morning.

The child was rushed to Archbold Memorial Hospital where the 19-month-old was later pronounced dead.

Captain Steve Jones with the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office said, “We are unfortunately having to investigate the tragedy of the infant passing away. And it's not that we necessarily suspect foul play.  We just have to do a thorough investigation of any death of this nature.”

Captain Jones said he hopes to learn the crime lab's results in the next few days.
