LA PLATA, Md. (WJLA) – A 24-year-old mother was taken to a hospital for a medical evaluation after she was found pushing her dead son in a swing.

Authorities say they received a call just before 7 a.m. on Friday after a caller said a woman had been pushing a toddler in a swing for “an unusually long period of time.”

The woman told police the mother may have even been pushing the 3-year-old overnight.

Officials say the child, who did not show any signs of trauma, was taken to the medical examiner to determine his exact cause of death.
