Hazmat units were called to the scene of a home in West Park after a teenager died Wednesday.
An uncle of the teenager told NBC 6 his nephew did not feel well and went to the hospital Tuesday, but was sent home. The boy's father took him to Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital Wednesday just after 9 a.m. where the boy was pronounced dead.
The boy's uncle has since identified him as 15-year-old Lorvens Julien.
Police said a strange odor was coming from Julien's body, possibly gas.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies later arrived at the home, located in the 5300 block of Southwest 24th Street.
Once police entered the home, one officer reported having difficulty breathing and went to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood. Later, a firefighter who also went inside suffered second-degree burns after being exposed to an unknown chemical and was also sent to Memorial Regional Hospital for treatment.
It was later determined the skin irritation he experienced was not related to the call.
HAZMAT teams with Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue and Hollywood Fire Rescue took readings and samples and analyzed the findings to determine what kind of hazardous chemicals, if any, were present.
After several sweeps of the home, rescue personnel deemed the scene safe for homicide and crime scene detectives to continue their death investigation. No hazardous or harmful materials were found.
The Broward Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of death.
Both the deputy and firefighter are expected to be treated and released.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this story said the teen was found dead inside the house. He died at Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital.
