LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a 4-month-old child who went into cardiac arrest in Kentucky. The Courier-Journal reports that Louisville Metro Police responded to a call about the incident early Saturday morning. Police say the child's parents had called 911 and started administering CPR before the fire department arrived and tried to save the child's life. Police say the child was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where the 4-month-old was pronounced dead.

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - Officials say a Kentucky woman who was reported missing while swimming in the Ohio River was found alive on the banks. The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reports that, according to Kentucky State Police, 32-year-old Lindsey N. Early of Cannelton and a friend were swimming early Friday near an island around Lewisport, Kentucky when she went missing. Multiple agencies were searching for her. When they found her Friday afternoon, she was muddy and potentially dehydrated.

CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Archaeologists have unearthed 17 graves from a pioneer-era cemetery in southern Indiana for a road-widening project. The excavations at Clarksville's Stewart-Emery Cemetery were required by federal and state law to determine the impact the road project in the Ohio River city will have on the environment. Officials say all 17 graves excavated date between 1830 and 1900. The remains will eventually be reinterred at the cemetery.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge has issued an order to keep protesters away from a buffer zone outside Kentucky's only abortion clinic, which is targeted by a national anti-abortion group. The temporary restraining order issued Friday by U.S. District Judge David Hale was requested by federal prosecutors in a pre-emptive move ahead of vigils by Operation Save America. The head of the Christian fundamentalist group says the government's case is "very thin" and is based on a "false narrative."
