Police say 3-year-old Crystal Sanchez was discovered on the floor of her Longfellow Avenue apartment. According to witnesses, she was rushed out by EMS at around 1:30 p.m. while wearing an oxygen mask. Family members say Crystal had been sick, but thought that her mother's boyfriend was watching her.
