A 5-month-old girl in Pontiac city, Michigan, was found bleeding in bed and was not breathing. The infant's grandmother found her with a bloody nose early Monday morning.

The child's grandmother called Oakland County sheriff's deputies to her home in the 10 block of Gingell Court near North Perry and Woodward, authorities said. Medics performed CPR on the infant and took her to a nearby hospital. After her pulse was found, the girl was taken to Children's Hospital in Detroit where she was placed on a ventilator.

The baby's grandmother told deputies she woke up and checked on all seven of the children in the home, officials said. She said the infant was sleeping in bed with her father. The grandmother saw the infant had blood under her nose. She picked up the child to check on her and found she wasn't breathing.

Police said that the child's father who was sleeping next to her was unaware of what happened. The infant’s mother was reportedly asleep on the living room floor.

An investigation is underway into what caused the girl's health condition and Child Protective Services have been contacted.
