NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities are investigating whether a 17-month-old boy found unconscious at his Brooklyn foster home was beaten.
The boy, Kymell Oram, was in critical condition Saturday at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.
Police were questioning a 19-year-old who was dating the boy’s foster mother. The 32-year-old woman also has been questioned.
The city’s Administration for Children’s Services is investigating. They have asked the Family Court to place two other children from the home into the agency’s protective custody.
Police say officers and emergency medical technicians responding to a 911 call Thursday found Kymell in dire health.
