A Philadelphia father who claimed his 2-year-old suffered a deadly fall now faces murder charges.

Quadium Bass said he was playing video games in their home on the 1600 block of N 57th Street around 1:10 p.m. Friday when he heard a thump then realized his son, 2-year-old Bashir Mungin-Bass, had fallen down the steps, Philadelphia police said.

Bass told officers he performed CPR on the boy before officers arrived, police said.

Medics rushed the unresponsive child to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where Bashir died about an hour later.

It was later discovered that Bashir died from “blunt trunk extremity trauma to the body,” police said Tuesday.

On Monday, police charged Bass with murder of his son and child endangerment. No word on when he will arraigned.
