Original Information

On 08-17-18 at approximately 11:16 a.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies, along with Hernando County Fire Rescue, were dispatched to 12310 Elgin Boulevard in Spring Hill after 9-1-1 operators received a call of an infant who had just been removed from a hot car.

During the 9-1-1 call, a person on scene was providing CPR to the infant.

Upon arrival, deputies and fire rescue immediately began rendering aid to the infant.

The infant, in critical condition, was quickly transported to Oak Hill Hospital by Hernando County Fire Rescue. Deputies established a crime scene at the residence.

Preliminary investigation reveals that the infant, Keyton O’Callaghan W/M DOB/11-06-2017, had been in the care of his mother, Cami Lee Moyer W/F DOB/07-12-1980, since last night.

The infant was discovered in the car, in the driveway, by the father, Eric O’Callaghan W/M DOB/02-10-1986, just before the 9-1-1 call was placed this morning. O’Callaghan performed CPR on the infant until fire rescue arrived and took over.

Sadly, at 12:06 p.m., Keyton O’Callaghan was pronounced deceased by a physician at Oak Hill Hospital.
