Shortly after 1:00 pm on Tuesday (11/19), Wichita Falls police officers were dispatched to the 1800 block of Polk Street in reference to a child not breathing.

6-month-old Connor David Fernholz, son of Nickolas and Brittany Fernholz, was napping in his home when he suddenly stopped breathing.

Connor was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Michael Little.

A member of the family has told News Talk 1290 that the cause of the infant's death was likely SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

A GiveFoward donation page has been set up to assist the Fernholz family with the funeral and other unexpected expenses. If you would like to help the family and make a donation, click here.

Townsquare Media would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the Fernholz family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
