He said a crying neighbor shouted to him from the stairwell of their loft to educate him concerning Liam.
"I ran out in the street, ran down. I saw the police cars, and I saw his stroller in two pieces. He has a little green frog that he's had with him since day one. He carries it around wherever he is. He won't sleep without his green frog and it was lying in the middle of the street," he said.
The teenager and Liam were raced to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. She is required to be OK, however Liam was pronounced mind dead and would be taken off life bolster Monday.
Liam's organs will be given since his family said he wanted to share and bring satisfaction to everybody.
