BOSTON (WHDH) – A baby suffering from cardiac arrest was hospitalized after showing up unresponsive to a children’s center in Roxbury on Friday morning.
The baby arrived unresponsive to Children’s Services of Roxbury on Dudley Street around 9:30 a.m. on a van contracted by the center, according to the CEO of Children’s Services of Roxbury.
Staff members reportedly brought the child inside and began administering CPR as they waited for an ambulance.
“I know that my staff reacted responsibly and honorably,” CEO of Children’s Services in Roxbury Sandra McCroom said.
The baby was brought to Boston Medical Center, where her current condition has not been released.
The center serves 93 children.
The CEO says parents are able to pick up their children but added that their kids are safe.
Boston police say this is a medical call and not a criminal matter but it remains under investigation.
