The boy’s mother had custody of the child and the father, who had visiting rights, was supposed to hand the boy over to the mother at a police precinct on Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

Luis Ortiz told the New York Post that he was at the hospital when paramedics rushed the boy there and that they were pumping his chest and working on him.

“You could tell he was slipping away. They said the father was up there, but they didn’t bring anyone else in. It was just heartbreaking. I have two kids of my own. They tried to do the best they could,” Ortiz told the newspaper.

Authorities said the father did not live in the building.
