MILWAUKEE - Officials with the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's office say that another co-sleeping death has happened in the city.

It happened in a home on North 28th Street, a block east of West Fond du Lac Avenue

An autopsy is scheduled for later today. 

The news comes one day after BMO Harris Bank announced it is donating $750,000 to help combat Milwaukee's high infant mortality rate.
