UNION, N.J. (AP) - An emaciated child found inside a New Jersey apartment where his mother had been dead for days has been released from the hospital.
Police in Union said Thursday that the 4-year-old boy, whose name has not been released, was out of the hospital and in temporary foster care.
Autospy results are still not available in the death of his mother, 38-year-old Kiana Workman of New York City's Brooklyn borough. Foul play isn't suspected.
Police found the malnourished boy and the body of his mother on Tuesday after a foul odor was reported coming from the chain-locked apartment.
The boy weighed 26 pounds, well below average for his age.
His grandmother is in a nursing facility and police are looking for other relatives.
Adoption offers have come in from around the world.
