A 2-year-old boy died after his mom found him unresponsive in his Westchester County room Monday, and cops are looking for the babysitter responsible for looking after him, a city official with knowledge of the case tells News 4.
The Mount Vernon official said the boy's mother got home from work that evening to find her child unconscious. He was taken to Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It's not clear how the child died, but the official said the man who had been watching the boy told the mother to tell detectives he was being watched by someone else. Both the mother and the man had gone to the hospital.
The man fled and hasn't been seen since.
Police are looking for that man, the official said. No arrests have been made in the case.
An autopsy will determine the boy's cause of death.
