NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A devastated Brooklyn family was demanding answers Thursday after a toddler died following a routine circumcision.

Jamaal Coleson Jr., who would have turned 2 next month, died on Tuesday, hours after undergoing the medical procedure at Beth Israel Medical Center.

The boy’s family told CBS 2 the young child was given a general anesthetic instead of a local.

The New York State Department of Health is now investigating the case.

The hospital said it is also conducting its own internal review.
