A kilo press was found inside of the licensed Bronx daycare center on Friday where an infant died and two other tots were hospitalized due to fentanyl exposure, police said.
Mayor Eric Adams and top police brass outlined the criminal investigation involving Divino Nino Daycare in Kingsbridge during a press conference early Saturday morning at Montefiore Hospital.
According to newly minted Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny, first responders rushed to the facility 2707 Morris Avenue at 2:43 p.m. on Sept. 15 after a 911 call alerted authorities that three children were unconscious and in grave condition.
Upon arrival, police discovered 1-year-old Nicholas Dominici unconscious along with two other children: a 2-year-old boy and an 8-month-old girl. All three exhibited signs of exposure to fentanyl, a pain-killing narcotic that’s 50 times more potent than heroin and is often mixed in with other illegal drugs, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
