CROSBY TWP., OH (FOX19) -

The overnight night death of a 2-month-old boy is suspected to be from medical reasons, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.

"It appears to be a SIDS death, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Knapp. "That's how our detectives are looking at this. What they think is the dog didn't have anything to do with it."

Haze Goins was pronounced dead in the emergency room at Mercy West Hospital in Green Township early Tuesday, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

His cause of death is pending, a coroner's sheet shows. It lists his address in the 100 block of Fernald Drive in Crosby Township.

That's where crews responded after Hamilton County emergency dispatchers received a 3:10 a.m. report of a baby not breathing at that location when a dog sat on him, a communication report states.

A frantic, crying woman told a dispatcher the baby was blue, not breathing and had blood coming out of his nose, according to a recording of the 911 call released to FOX19 NOW.

Deputies called SPCA Cincinnati to the scene and asked them to take the dog, said Mike Retzlaff, vice president of SPCA operations.

He said the dog appears to be pregnant, but that is not confirmed yet. 

 A veterinarian on the medical staff will give the dog a full exam that will include a pregnancy test.

The dog appears to be a pit-bull mix of some sort.
