Records: Neb. dad kept alive by young son has died
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Court records show the father of a 10-year-old Nebraska boy has died, days after he fell in their home and was found being cared for by his son.
An amended petition filed in court Monday says 45-year-old Bienvenu Asumani died Sunday. Additional information about his death wasn't available.
Lincoln police say an investigator went to the home Friday after a principal reported the boy had missed four days of school. An affidavit says the boy told police his father fell on a wet floor more than a week before, striking his head. The boy says he gave his father fluids and food.
Asumani was taken to a hospital, while his son was put in state custody.
Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Dan Zieg, who filed the petition, couldn't immediately be reached.
