    Annakin Gammon was taken to Sharon Regional Hospital, where he died.

    "I'm a father; this is heartbreaking," said Chief Gerry Smith, with Sharon police. "A parent's worst nightmare."

    The older boy, who is hearing impaired, was found walking by himself in Brookfield. Police also tell Channel 11 he is nonverbal and living with autism.

    Smith says officers are talking to the parents, but it's too soon to say if any charges will be filed.
