#Bridgeport CT–Witnesses tell us that a young autistic boy maybe two years old was left unattended on Summerfield Ave. apartment and fell from a 2nd story porch. The child was transported to Bridgeport Hospital. He has since been transported to Yale pediatric with a severe brain bleed. From what I am told his prognosis is grim. There are other children that live in that home and police are investigating.
From Bridgeport Police:
The Major Crime Squad responded to process and document the scene. Detectives from the Youth Bureau also responded to investigate. As per protocol, the state Department of Children and Families was notified.
The investigation remains in its early stages. Based on initial information, it appears that the child was with a non-family member who had a number of other children in her care at that apartment. The circumstances in which the child fell remains the subject of an active investigation.
