A 3-month-old baby boy was discovered unconscious and unresponsive Monday afternoon inside an Ozone Park apartment and later died at a nearby hospital, according to authorities.
Cops responded to the residence above Heavenly Florist on Cross Bay Boulevard and Linden Boulevard around 2:30 p.m. and found Joseph Carucci lying face-down on an adult bed. Emergency medical personnel rushed the boy to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made, and police have said that criminality was not suspected in the incident. However, the City Administration for Children’s Services is conducting an investigation.
Requests for comment from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were not answered by press time. The City ME will determine the cause and manner of Joseph’s death.
