The family of an 8-year-old boy is suing a Chicago hospital on claims that doctors mistakenly pronounced their son dead.

Relatives of Jaylen Dorsey accuse Mercy Hospital and Medical Center of negligence. They say doctors refused to listen when they insisted Jaylen's eyes and body were still moving.

Hospital officials deny the allegations.

Jaylen was taken to Mercy in February after his parents found him unresponsive at home.
