Baby stops breathing, is kept alive

January 26, 1995

A 2-month-old Gambrills boy was being kept alive by life support systems yesterday after county police found him not breathing at a day care home in Gambrills, authorities said.

The infant, James Hoover, was in critical condition yesterday afternoon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, a spokeswoman there said. He had a heartbeat but was unable to breathe on his own, police said.

The infant was at the house in the 2100 block of Branchwood Court when Kimberly Egan, who runs the day care home, discovered that he wasn't breathing when she tried to feed him shortly before noon. Western District officers found the boy lying face-up in a crib and tried unsuccessfully to revive him with cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The boy was taken to Kimbrough Army Hospital at Fort Meade, where he showed signs of life. He was flown from Kimbrough by helicopter to Hopkins, police said.
