Health officials are looking into a sudden spike in the number of babies in our state dying from sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS.
Thirty-nine percent more North Carolina infants died of SIDS in 2008 than in the previous year, according to the News and Observer.
The number of SIDS deaths increased while the overall number of child deaths decreased. Officials say the increase may be just a "blip", and requires further investigation.
