Hazmat units were called to the scene Wednesday of a home in West Park where a teenager died one day after family said he was sent home from the hospital.
Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at the scene, located in the 5300 block of Southwest 24th Street, after reports that the 15-year-old male died inside the home.
An uncle of the teenager told NBC 6 his nephew did not feel well and went to the hospital Tuesday, but was sent home. The uncle said his condition got worse and the teen died Wednesday morning.
Officials have not released the teen’s identity or why hazmat units were called to the scene, but the uncle said his nephew did not have COVID-19.
