The King County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death today of a 4-year-old Enumclaw boy.
The boy died at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma after being admitted there Sunday with injuries hospital officials called suspicious, the sheriff’s office said.
The sheriff’s office said Thursday it is investigating the cause of the boy’s injuries, but no arrests have been made.
The boyfriend of the boy’s mother had been taking care of the boy while the mother was at work Saturday.
The boyfriend called the boy’s mother Saturday evening and said he took the boy to his own mother’s house because the boy was sick. The boy’s mother picked up her son and returned to their home in Enumclaw. The mother was then up all night with her sick boy, the sheriff’s office said.
The mother and the boyfriend started to take the boy to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Sunday. But the boy became unconscious on the way and they went instead to Valley Medical Center in Renton.
The boy was then airlifted to Mary Bridge, where he died this morning.
