“(The child) was pale white,” Tiffany Miller said. “When I took him, he looked at me, grabbing my mouth, whimpering, but he was going ‘uhhh, uhhh, uhhh,’ like he was gasping for air and couldn’t breathe.”

The neighbor claimed she told Rowe to call 911, but said it wasn’t until Saturday that the boy received medical attention.
