MILWAUKEE -- A mother has been arrested in the death of her 14-month-old son in Milwaukee.

Police responded to a call from a concerned family member Sunday and found the mother semi-conscious at the home. WISN-TV reports the 36-year-old mother had apparently taken some pills. Her son was found dead at the scene.

Authorities say the mother was revived, treated and arrested. The Milwaukee County medical examiner will do an autopsy to determine how the child died.
