ULYSSES, Kan. — For the second time in a month, authorities are investigating the death of a toddler in Grant County.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says Grant County sheriff deputies and Ulysses police were called after a family member took a 1-year-old girl to a Ulysses hospital on Sunday.

The child, Mia Garay, was not breathing when she arrived at the hospital and she could not be revived. An autopsy is pending.

The KBI is also investigating the death of 13-month-old Jaxon Silva of Ulysses. Officers were called on Oct. 6 with a report that the boy was unresponsive. He later died at a Wichita hospital.
