BX. TOT EATS COKE, DIES
A 2-year-old niece of former Yankee player Luis Polonia died after swallowing cocaine left around her Bronx apartment by her mother's suspected-drug-dealer boyfriend, police said.

Relatives of Sherlyn Polonia said yesterday they were appalled when investigators broke the horrific news to them.

"I couldn't believe it when they told us that the reason the baby died was because there was cocaine in her blood," said the little girl's great-uncle, Abel Almontes. "We never expected this to happen in our family."

He said Sherlyn's father, Josť Polonia, lives in Santiago, Dominican Republic, and is the brother of outfielder Luis Polonia, who retired after the 2000 season.

Luis Polonia, who was playing in the Dominican Winter League playoffs this week, could not be reached for comment.

WOAH! I read the story in the Daily News and I don't recall mention of Luis. A very sad story at any rate.

Terribly, sad story. I hope she didn't suffer. the Boyfriend should be executed. A better Mom would have chosen better who she keeps company with, her daughter deserved better.

I don't understand how any parent could allow someone to endanger his or her child like that. That is just so irresponsible.

Reminds me of a guy I know with a horrible drug problem. He has a son that has got to be about 8 years old and he does drugs around him all the time. I always felt bad for that kid.

Now here is a case where it is appropriate to blame the parents. We have to have a license to drive a car, cut hair or repair a toilet but anyone can have a child. What a horrible story.
