Soon after, he was transferred by ambulance to the nearby Children’s Hospital where he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Multiple trauma doctors and specialists saw and treated John. He was put on an IV and placed on a ventilator, but hours later he went into a second cardiac arrest.

On Nov. 29, 2013, at 12:47 p.m. — less than 24 hours after his parents first brought him to the hospital — John was declared dead.

Police were called to investigate.
