The Wall Street Journal, October 28, 2011

Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn says it is investigating the death of a 6-month-old boy in its care. According to media reports, the family says Amaan Ahmmad died from an overdose of an antibiotic. A cousin, Jhora Akther, told the Daily News they brought the infant to the emergency room on Friday because he was running a fever. Akther said the boy was hooked to an IV drip and administered an antibiotic. He said the child went into a coma and died on Tuesday. The hospital said in a statement that it was "investigating the circumstances of this traffic incident."
