A 13-month-old little girl died at an in home daycare in Urbandale.
It happened at 4:17 Friday afternoon at 4512 83rd street. The girl's father came to pick the girl up from daycare around the time she was pronounced dead.
Police say the daycare provider called for help while a neighbor tried to perform CPR. It's still unclear if the girl was injured or died of natural causes. Her body has already been taken to the Polk County Medical Examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
Police are waiting to release her name until all the family can be notified.
"It's just a very, very sad situation here," said Officer Randy Peterson, Urbandale Police Dept. "Our hearts go out to that family and to the community at this point here to make sure we all heal and we get any kind of counseling we need."
ABC5 went to the daycare, but no one was available for comment.
Police do not know of any previous problems with the daycare. They say we will likely have more information on Tuesday.
