Review Of Children Deaths Aimed At Prevention

August 21, 2012, 5:55 AM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The review of 22 infant and child deaths in the region over the past year could help prevent other similar deaths in the future.

The Regional Infant and Child Mortality Review Committee takes a closer look at deaths in the ten-county region every year and will release its annual report Tuesday in Sioux Falls.

The committee was tasked with taking a look at the circumstances of 71 deaths over the past year; 22 met the criteria for a further review.  Among those deaths, the group of health, legal and law enforcement experts were able to identify eight key prevention areas.

We'll have a news crew at Tuesday's news conference to bring you more on their findings tonight on KELOLAND News.
