3-Month-Old Boy in Foster Care Found Dead in Queens Home, Sources Say

QUEENS — A three-month-old boy in the care of a foster mother was found dead in a South Ozone Park home Tuesday afternoon, police and sources said.

The child was inside 115-30 132nd St. at about 12:30 p.m. when he was found unconscious and unresponsive, the NYPD said.

He was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The boy had been released from a hospital Monday into the foster mother’s care, sources said. It was not immediately clear why he had been in the hospital.

There were no obvious signs of bruising or trauma on the boy, and the city's medical examiner will determine the cause of death, police said.

There were no immediate arrests, and the investigation is ongoing. 

The Administration for Children's Services did not immediately return a request for comment.
