In September 2023, one child died and three others were hospitalized as a result of fentanyl poisoning at a day care center in the Bronx, New York. On June 10, the husband of the daycare owner, Felix Herrera Garcia, pleaded guilty to federal charges, reports ABC.


In September 2023, Garcia was spotted running from a Bronx day care center in a back alley with two heavy bags, officials said. At this time, children in the garden were suffering from exposure fentanyl. Garcia fled to Mexico after his death toddler in kindergarten. After a week of active manhunt, he was arrested.

A one-year-old boy, Nicholas Dominici, died and three children aged between 8 months and 2 years were hospitalized. They received treatment with the drug Narcan.

All three counts carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison.


The fentanyl was partially stored in a manhole underneath the floor of the day care center, officials said. Investigators found a kilogram of fentanyl stored on children's play mats, according to court documents.

Herrera Garcia's wife, Gray Mendez, removed their 2-year-old son from her own daycare before the incident because she was concerned he was showing signs of exposure to fentanyl. She did not report to the police and left the daycare open for other children.
