Associated Press Release
HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) -- A toddler who fell through the window of a second-story motel room in Hialeah has died.
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/16nPAdj ) reports Luis Enrique Rodriquez Jr. was taken off life support at Jackson Memorial Hospital on Thursday.
Tests conducted earlier in the week confirmed he was brain dead. Hospital staff had kept him on life support to harvest his organs for donation.
The child was going to turn 2 in October and fell through a window at the El Paraiso Motel just before midnight on Sept. 13.
Hialeah police charged the boy's parents with suspected child abuse after discovering alcoholic beverages and traces of cocaine in the family's room.
The parents denied the drugs belonged to them. Police spokesman Carl Zogby says the death appears to have been accidental.
