HAGERSTOWN, Md. - City police have confirmed that an 8-week-old baby boy died at a Children's Hospital in D.C. one day after choking on candy.

The baby was initially flown to Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Tuesday after first responders received a call for a choking baby at a home on Elizabeth Street in Hagerstown.

A supervisor with Hagerstown City Police says this appears to be accidental in nature.

The baby's body was taken to Baltimore for a formal autopsy.
