A 4-year-old living on sugar has been discovered by police. On March 27, the Seattle Times reported that New Jersey police found a 38-year-old woman dead in her home and her toddler son, malnourished, was living on sugar for nearly a week. The young boy weighed about half of what he should weigh. He was taken to a nearby hospital and remains there today.

"Police found the woman and her son Tuesday. They first believed she had been dead about five days but now say it may have been two to three. A cause of death hasn't yet been determined," the Seattle Times reported.

The 4-year-old living on sugar weighed 26 pounds according to the report. He should weigh about 46 pounds. Authorities believe that the boy lived on whatever he could get his hands on, since his mom was dead and he couldn't reach the door of the refrigerator or the upper cabinets in the kitchen.
The boy's mother has been identified as Kiana Workman of Brooklyn, N.Y. She and her boy were found in her mother's apartment in Union, New Jersey. As stated above, it is unclear what exactly happened, but the little boy had no choice. He had to eat what he could when he was hungry.

The 4-year-old who was living on sugar may end up living with a family member, however, several people have sent in requests to adopt him.
