The infant, three-month-old Reece Modzelewski, was at home with his babysitter in Saddle Brook, New Jersey on Tuesday when she said he slipped from her grasp and fell to the floor, hitting his head. At approximately 3:00 p.m. that same day, the babysitter reportedly dropped baby Reece, who landed on his head.

According to PEOPLE, Mark Modzelewski, and Nicole Nicastro took their only child, son Reece, off life support on Friday and he died minutes later. The 3-month-old died Friday.

In a separate GoFundMe, which has raised more than $20,000, a family member expressed his sadness for the parents.

When officers arrived, they found the baby unconscious and unresponsive, said township Police Chief Robert Kugler.

'A second of misfortune will turn into a lifetime of pain as is the case with most tragedies. The fact that this happening so close to Christmas and right between both of our birthdays will only make it harder.

She said friends are doing what they can to help the couple get through hard times ahead.

"No parent should ever have to get that devastating call saying their son is not breathing", Benjamin DiFranco wrote on the page. "Reece will be taken off oxygen and he will likely pass this week".

The 3-month-old baby boy was Mark Modzelewski, 32, and Nicole Nicastro, 34, only child. "If additional funds are available beyond the expenses of the tree and bench, then surely those funds will be given directly to Mark and Nicole".

Now, GoFundMe page set up to support the grieving couple has raised over £17,000.

A fundraising campaign was also created to help Modzelewski and Nicastro pay for costs.

At the time, the child's mother, a pre-K teacher at James F. Murray Elementary School No. 38 in Jersey City, had like most mornings, driven her son from Carteret to Saddle Brook, where she left him with the sitter before driving to work in Hudson County. The memorial will consist of a bench and a tree, according to the GoFundMe page.
