A 2-week-old boy died in Brooklyn after what appears to be a tragic accident, police said Monday.
Police responding to a 911 call at a New Lots Avenue apartment around 5 a.m. found little Justin Bernard unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine how Bernard died, but at this point, police say no criminality is expected. It's thought Bernard's parents put the infant in bed with them and his case is considered a rollover death.
