HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- A mother and her one-year-old son were found dead in their Hollywood apartment Monday, along with a two-year-old boy with severe dehydration.
KTLA reports that the mom and one-year-old were likely dead for days.
The mother was found in a seated position on the floor, police say, and apparently had collapsed and died while feeding the one-year-old, who was strapped into a chair.
The one-year-old appeared to have aspirated on food and died, police tell KTLA.
A neighbor says the mother had been sick and treated for bronchitis recently. When the neighbor went to the mom's apartment, he heard the two-year-old crying and then called 911.
Firefighters had to break in to the apartment.
The two boys were reportedly adopted. The two-year-old is in stable condition.
