NYC: Bronx man arrested after he brought unconscious toddler to hospital miles away

A Bronx man was busted after a 3-year-old girl he was babysitting suddenly fell unconscious — and later died — but instead of driving her to the closest hospital, he brought her to one a half-hour away in Queens, according to police.

The tot’s mother, Jaylynn Evans, of East New York, brought her to 59-year-old Anthony Richardson’s Mott Haven apartment Thursday, cops said.

Richardson is Evans’ best friend’s step-father, according to police. A 4-year-old child was also in the home.

The two children were watching TV and having snacks when Jaylynn suddenly became unconscious, police said.

Richardson decided to drive her to the Cohen Children’s Medical Center in the Glen Oaks neighborhood of Queens — thinking it was the one best-suited to treat her, cops said. Jaylynn was pronounced dead at the hospital.
