Neighbors told the outlet they watched helplessly as EMS performed CPR on the boy's lifeless body.

Law enforcement agents then took a man believed to be the boy's father into a vehicle belonging to the prosecutor's office around 9 p.m., after hours of investigating, authorities said.

Irvington Township Mayor Tony Vauss reportedly declined comment to RLS Media due to an open investigation, but expressed condolences. 

A spokesperson for the prosecutor's office said only that an investigation was under way as of Monday morning.
