“Anyone who participates in the program, we check on them on a regular basis and we call those wellness checks,” said YMCA President James Morton. “So if we don’t see someone or they were supposed to participate in a meeting and didn’t show up, then we would go and check on them.”

The baby was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
