BROOKLYN, N.Y. (WPIX) — An 11-year-old boy died on New Year's Day after a possible allergic reaction to fish, police said Wednesday.
Camron Jean-Pierre was pronounced dead Tuesday at a hospital after police discovered him unconscious and unresponsive at his home on East 82nd Street in Brooklyn's Canarsie neighborhood, according to the NYPD.
Police initially responded to reports made at 7:24 p.m. that day about an unconscious person at the home.
People at the scene told investigators Jean-Pierre was allergic to fish, and someone in the home was cooking fish, NYPD officials said.
Although Jean-Pierre was not believed to have consumed any fish, he may have had an allergic reaction to it, police said.
His cause of death remains under investigation.
