An infant boy died in his mother's arms as she breastfed him in their home Tuesday morning, the NYPD says.
The 2-month-old baby, Caleb Choi, was found unconscious and unresponsive when officers responded to the Arden Avenue home on Staten Island around 5:30 a.m., police said.
Police say the boy's mother fell asleep while breastfeeding him, then woke up to find the child not breathing.
