The boy, along with his mother, were taken to a San Antonio hospital.

A close family friend told Action 4 News the 3-year-old passed away over the weekend after being on life support for two days at a San Antonio hospital.

The friend said the family needs donations.

If you would like to help the famiily, you can go to any Wells Fargo Bank and make a donation to Veronica Aguilar's account.
