2 people are charged with murder after a 1-year-old boy died from fentanyl exposure at a Bronx, NY daycare.

The boy and three other children – ages 2 months to 2 years old – were rushed to a nearby hospital after they were found unconscious at the home-based Divino Niño daycare in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx on Friday.

Medics treated the children with the opioid antidote Narcan at the scene before transporting them to the hospital, where Nicholas Dominici was pronounced dead.

On Saturday, police arrested the daycare owner, Grei Mendez, 36, and a building tenant, Carlisto Acevedo Brito, 41, on charges of depraved indifference murder, assault and criminal possession of opioids.

Video footage shows Brito and others fleeing the building with bags before police arrived.

Police say they found 1 kilo of fentanyl and 3 kilo presses — devices used to package large quantities of drugs – inside the daycare center.

Mendez’s attorney said his client had no idea fentanyl was in the closet in her daycare center. “She called the cops. Would you call the cops if you know there is fentanyl in your apartment?”

Nicholas’ parents, Zoila Dominici and Otoniel Feliz, said their son started attending the daycare only a week ago.

Zoila said she was allowed to tour the daycare on the first day but she was told she couldn’t go inside after that day.

The children were escorted out to their parents daily to avoid “contaminating” the daycare from the outside, she said.
