Elijah's father didn't make it to the hospital in time to see his son before he died, ABC7NY reports. "In the meantime, we closed the Centre for Family Services and continuing to aggressively investigate what happened and whether the facility could have done something differently to prevent this tragedy".
But officials answered few questions Thursday at a news conference six days after the death, declining to say whether the daycare was equipped with something as simple as an EpiPen. "There are protocols that both the hospital and preschool must follow". "As we ease into this unthinkable reality and say goodbye to our sweet, joyful Elijah - and our hopes and dreams for all he would become - we thank you for your support". I don't know if it can be avoided because we don't really know what happened.
Elijah is survived by his parents and a brother.
