His family told police they were preparing dinner when he had some kind of allergic reaction, according to local media reports.

Camron was rushed to the hospital, but he couldn't be saved.

Jean-Paul and his father Steven had travelled to Brooklyn from New Jersey to spend New Year’s Day with Camron’s grandmother.

The New York Post reports the father and son walked into the home as Camron's grandmother was preparing a seafood dinner.

The 11-year-old has an allergy to fish but his father said it had never had a reaction that severe before and carried a portable nebulizer which he tried to use when he was overcome by the fumes of the cooking.

The city's medical examiner will determine the cause of his death, including whether he reacted to the smell of the fish being cooked at the time.
