THE BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11) – A vigil was held Sunday night for 1-year-old Nicholas Dominici, who died after being exposed to fentanyl at a Bronx day care last month.
Three other children were hospitalized due to the exposure at Divino Nino day care. Community members who attended the vigil vowed to never let what happened at the day care happen again.
Grei Mendez, the operator of the day care center, her husband and a cousin were all indicted on murder charges in connection with the death of Dominici.
