INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The mother of a toddler fatally injured when a television fell onto him says she’s grateful for the Indianapolis police officer who worked to keep the boy alive.

Nakita Jones says the time with her 11-month-old son Demetrius was precious during the three weeks he was in Riley Hospital for Children before he died last week.

Jones tells WISH-TV (https://bit.ly/T0HpUW ) that Demetrius survived long enough to know that he was loved while in the hospital surrounded by family members.

Jones says she’s thankful police Detective David Miller was at the apartment complex when Demetrius was injured after falling into a TV stand and gave him CPR until medics arrived.
