Officials at McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas say they're investigating a child's death at the base nearly a week ago but are releasing very few details to the public.
A news release issued Wednesday by the base said the child died on Sept. 21 but did not include their name, sex or age.
"Attempts to revive the child by first responders were unsuccessful," the three-paragraph release said.
Base officials did not immediately respond to USA TODAY on Wednesday for more information.

The child's cause of death is under investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.
