(WBIR - Knoxville) Knoxville police say a 19-month-old baby's death was an accident.

According to a preliminary investigation, the child woke up from a nap at an apartment off Middlebrook Pike and got into her older sibling's bed.

When her mom found her, she said the baby was wedged between the bed and the wall. The young girl could not breathe and died.
