NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 3-month-old boy was found dead Tuesday in a foster home in Queens, police sources said.

Around 12:30 p.m., police were called to 115-30 132nd St. in South Ozone Park, Queens and found the baby unconscious and unresponsive, police said.

The baby was rushed to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jamaica, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
