The Weedsport baby born with a rare skin disease was rushed back to the hospital Sunday night when he stopped breathing.
Baby Easton Friedel was taken to the emergency room when he passed out and lost consciousness twice. According to a Facebook page dedicated to Easton, he "turned blue and seemed like he was hyperventilating."
Last month, Easton returned home from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital on Sunday, where he underwent a bronchoscope, a procedure where a small camera and light are fed into the lungs used to examine the lungs and take samples.
Baby Easton was born in August of 2012 with skin missing from some areas and blisters in other areas, a rare condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB. There is no cure for this genetic disease and it turns up in only about 1 in every 50,000 live births.
