Hazard Involving Juvenile- Possible Drowning

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015, Hartford Police Department Patrol Officers were dispatched to 53 Elmer St. HTFD on a 911 report of an injured child. Arriving Officers determined the parents had already left the address to deliver the child to the Hospital. On the way to the hospital, the parents encountered EMS personnel. The child was immediately transported to CT Children's by EMS. HPD Detectives from the Special Investigative Division as well as the Major Crimes Division initiated an investigation.

The one year old victim, Antonio Armando Delgado, Jr, Born July 10, 2014, was listed as critical with severe injury due to lack of oxygen. The child's parents, Antonio Armando Delgado, Sr, 33 of Hartford and Tamara Lee Santana, 27 of Hartford, have been in contact with investigators.
