On August 21 at 12:03 p.m., Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to Shiloh Baptist Church in the 2400 block of Sycamore Avenue 21219 for a report of a child in cardiac arrest.
The initial investigation into the incident has indicated that a woman who worked at the church had arrived and was going to drop off her 13-month-old foster child, a girl, at the daycare center next to the church. She began to speak with someone in a parking lot, walked into the church, and left the child in the car. When she returned to the car, she found the child in cardiac arrest. The woman immediately called 911 and started CPR.
The child, Paris Bena Hall of the unit block of Horseman Court, 21133, was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where she was declared deceased later that day.
This incident is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit. The Homicide Unit investigates sudden deaths of juveniles.
