The mother rushed to the apartment and initially believed Kimora, as Kimora was a trusted family friend, as Kimora had watched Kyrie multiple times in the past.

Once the mother arrived at the apartment and saw Kyrie, she called 911. Paramedics took the baby to the hospital.

Doctors then discovered that Kyrie had been physically abused. Doctors told the mother that her son Kyrie had blunt force trauma to the head and was bleeding. Kyrie had to have immediate brain surgery.

Kimora was arrested and charged with felony child abuse. 

After over a week of emergency care, Kyrie died on June 22, 2022. Charges are likely to be upgraded to murder for Kimora.
