A 1-year-old boy died at a Bronx day care on Friday and three other children were hospitalized under circumstances that were under investigation, officials said.
Emergency medical services workers responded to a 911 call requesting help for the children at 2707 Morris Avenue in the Bronx at around 2:45 p.m., officials said. They were met outside by two people who the emergency services workers believed to be working at the day care, officials said.
The 1-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene, the police said, and a 2-year-old boy and a 7-month-old girl were taken to Montefiore Medical Center and were in stable condition. A 2-year-old boy was taken to Bronx Health Care systems and was also in stable condition, the police said.
After the children were removed from the day care, Fire Department units tested the premises for environmental hazards and found no evidence of carbon monoxide, officials said.
