    Police are investigating after a 2-month-old baby died in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, on Tuesday morning.

    Yarmouth police said they received a 911 call just before 7 a.m. reporting that a 2-month-old was not breathing, was unconscious, and that CPR had been started.

    When officers arrived at the home on Webbers Path in West Yarmouth, they said they found a woman performing CPR on the infant on the living room floor. Police took over and the infant was eventually transported to the emergency center at Cape Cod Hospital.

    Despite their efforts, they said the baby could not be revived and has died.

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Detectives with Yarmouth and state police are conducting a follow-up investigation. The state Department of Children and Families was also notified.
