‘Parents of autistic son, who killed himself, told of shock and disbelief’
CHADwick Boseman, the 20-year-old father of autistic teenager Andrew Bosemann, is expected to be released from hospital after a week of hospitalization.
According to his mother, she had hoped to be able to speak with him and see him, but he died earlier this week after a two-hour coma.
“My heart goes out to his family, to the people who love him and to all of the people around him who loved him,” she told reporters outside the hospital.
The parents of Andrew Bokeman, 20, said they were stunned when the teen’s father, Jeff Bezos, announced he would be spending the next week in a mental health facility.
They described his son as a “truly sweet, gentle boy,” who had been struggling with autism for two years.
“His dad and I knew he was a special son,” said the mother, who declined to give her last name.
“We just knew he would never make it through this.”
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, told reporters he was shocked and saddened by the death of Andrew.
“We lost a very special young man this morning.
We mourn his loss with all of our hearts,” he said.
Boseman was found unconscious in a bathroom at the home of his parents in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday.
A family member said he had been suicidal for months.
Bosenzas family and friends described Bosemans mental health problems in detail.
“He had no problem with himself, no problem in being happy,” said his sister, Erica Bosemen, who attended the family’s funeral.
“I think he was just a little bit more sensitive and a little more withdrawn than we were used to seeing.
He was just in a lot of pain.”
She said she had no idea why Bose was being taken to the hospital and had no explanation for why he had killed himself.
“It’s a really sad situation for all of us, but it’s also really sad for the Bosemans because Andrew was a wonderful, loving, caring kid.
He had a smile on his face, and I have a lot more respect for him now than I did then,” she said.”
And it’s just hard for us to understand what was going through his head.”
Andrew had been on life support at Mount Sinai Hospital since late December.
The Brooklyn Police Department and the hospital declined to comment on the case.
According in a statement to The Associated Press, Bose’s parents have asked for privacy.
The teen had been in the hospital since November with multiple surgeries for a blood clot in his brain.
The family was initially planning to bring him home, but after his condition deteriorated, they decided to leave him there for a few days, according to the AP.
His mother said the family is devastated by his death.
“As parents, we want to be here for him, so we want this to be a private time,” she added.BOSEMAN’S FAMILY AND FRIENDS WERE SURPRISED TO HEALTH NEWS’ ACCOUNTABILITY OF PAST ACCUSATIONS The AP reported that family members of Andrew were “shocked” by the accuracy of past media reports, and expressed their shock at the fact that his family had been targeted in a report by a New York newspaper.
In a news release posted on the website of the New York Post on Wednesday, family members said their family was “shattered” by recent news reports that the Bosenzans had been accused of the “accusation that they had been negligent in their care” for years.
The statement added: “This is a shocking accusation that has never been proven in court, and we are saddened to learn that it has come to light through media reports.”
“We are in shock and we do not understand why this has been brought to light.
We have no further comment at this time,” the family added.
In an interview with The Associated News on Wednesday morning, Jeff Bosenzos said he did not think the media reports had “anything to do with what we do.”
“The whole thing is just a bunch of people making up stories, they’re making up false stories.
And if it turns out that he was in some sort of mental hospital, they should be held accountable,” he told the newspaper.”
The problem is that if they were really doing this, they’d be held responsible.”
In an Instagram post, Bosenzer posted a picture of himself wearing a “No Disinformation” shirt and a photo of Andrew holding a “Make America Great Again” hat.
“You’re all great,” Bosenzo wrote in the caption.
“Make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”
The Bosenzes are also known for their philanthropic efforts, including a scholarship program that provides support to autistic students in need.
