PENN HILLS, PA (WTAE/CNN) - A 4-month-old baby is dead in Pennsylvania after falling into a garbage bag.

Police say a relative left the baby on a bed for a nap as she tended to other children.

When she returned, the bedroom door was locked, likely by another child, and the baby was found inside a garbage bag at the base of the bed.

Authorities say it appeared the infant suffocated.

Police have turned the case over to the district attorney for review.
