WASHINGTON, DC. - It was shortly after noon Tuesday when a staffer at the day-care center at the Labor Department left a message for Jennifer Coleman, an accountant who worked a few floors above in the building on Constitution Avenue.

“Sterling was chewing a meatball and he ended up choking on some of it,” the voice-mail message stated. “Right now we’re trying get it out but we need you to come down to the school as soon as you can. Thank you.”

By the time Coleman, 26, heard the message and rushed downstairs, her oldest son, 3-year-old Sterling Moore Jr., was “in an ambulance and was unresponsive,” the child’s grandmother said Wednesday. The grandmother, Cheryl McCarthy of Northeast, forwarded the voice mail to The Washington Post,

D.C. police said Sterling died at Children’s National Medical Center at 12:46 p.m., 39 minutes after the first paramedic was dispatched to the Esther Peterson Child Development Center at the Labor Department building.
