LACOMBE, La. (AP) — The coroner in southeastern St. Tammany Parish announced a new program designed to prevent infant deaths. WDSU reports the program comes after seven infants died last year in the parish including five whose deaths were attributed to unsafe sleeping conditions. The coroner’s office will offer a 90-minute training to parents, grandparents, caregivers and first responders. Parents who take the training are given a free bassinet. The parish’s coroner, Charles A. Preston, told the station that many parents haven’t been given guidance on the best practices for safe sleeping conditions for their infants. He said infants should sleep alone, on their backs and in a crib.
