A 2-month-old boy was found badly beaten in his Bronx home — where ACS workers visited four times over the past two years, cop sources said Monday.

Police are now investigating the boy’s parents as he clings to life in a hospital pediatric unit.

Officers found little Kadiha Marrow in a first-floor apartment on Morris Ave. and Mount Hope Place in Mount Hope on Saturday morning, after getting a 911 call saying a baby had stopped breathing, sources said.

Medics rushed Kadiha to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, then took him to Mount Sinai Hospital after doctors saw the extent of his injuries, sources said.

He suffered bleeding on his brain and bruises and hemorrhaging in his eye, sources said. The infant lives with his mother, Ashley Rosario, 22, and his 2-year-old brother. His father, Cimmie Wright, 23, is homeless and often sleeps in the park, according to sources.

Authorities removed the 2-year-old boy and placed him in the care of his grandmother, sources said. NYDAILYNEWS
