After the death of 3-year-old Kyrah Martin, who fell off a roof to her death right before Christmas, the child’s mother Nefertiti had her three other young children taken away by child-welfare authorities.
“This is Christmas Day. My daughter doesn’t have any of her kids,” said Nadine Martin, the children’s grandmother.
“It’s bad enough she lost one child. They are holding onto the rest of the children. She’s hurting in so many ways. It’s Christmas, and the children aren’t even with their parents.”
, Nefertiti Martin, had tucked little Kyrah into bed at 1 a.m. The child then got up, walked out of the apartment on Park Place in Crown Heights and pushed open a door leading to the roof. Authorities said the roof door triggered an alarm but no one heard it.
Officials at the Administration for Children’s Services did not say why the agency took the other kids, ages 7, 6 and 2, noting, “We’re in the middle of an investigation.”
SMH. Like they don’t know why the other kids were taken! We feel bad for the family of Kyrah Martin but parents PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR CHILDREN!!!!
