Baby Could Be Released from Texas Children’s Hospital Today

(KTRK) — A baby who is on life support at Texas Children’s Hospital could be released as soon as Monday.

Over the weekend, an attorney for the hospital said they are willing to release Nick Torres to his family, according to the attorney’s office representing the family.

“They have told us that they believe it’s possible the hospital may be open to delivering baby Nick to the parents, releasing the baby, so the baby could be taken home and be cared for by the parents in hospice,” Kevin Acevedo, an attorney representing the family from the Gonzalez Law Group, said last week.

The announcement comes after Acevedo sent a letter to Texas Children’s Hospital demanding the child either be fed nutrients or be released to go home with the family after more than two weeks on a ventilator. CONTINUE
