911 tape: Colleton Co. infant death

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have released 911 call tapes following an infant's death in Colleton County that has the child's teenage mother facing charges.

Colleton County Sheriff's Major Paul Haase said deputies arrested 17-year-old Takevia Shanell Wilson, of Hampton, and charged her with unlawful conduct towards a child.  She was taken to the Colleton County Detention Center.

Deputies responded to a call of an unresponsive infant at 3738 Coolers Dairy Road, near Round-O, around 11 a.m. on Tuesday to find EMS preparing to transport an infant to Colleton Medical Center.  The infant was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.

According to 911 records, a person at the home said the baby was sleeping on the couch. When Wilson went to pick him up he was not breathing.

When people at the home attempted to give CPR to the 9-month-old baby, "brown stuff came of the baby's mouth," a person on the phone told 911 dispatchers.

The baby's mother can be heard in the background of the recording yelling, "my baby's not breathing."

The cause of death is undetermined at this time.

Haase said Wilson was charged after investigators spoke everyone who was in the house at the time of the incident.

Wilson has been granted a $50,000 bond.
