    A South Bay boy battling leukemia has lost his fight.

    The family of Eduardo Grijalva says the San Jose 6-year-old died Tuesday. They told NBC Bay Area the loss is "Hard to accept, but I know God has him in his arms."

    San Jose SWAT officers adopted Eduardo as one of their own.

    There were a number of bone marrow drives in the South Bay this year for the boy. Unfortunately, none of them resulted in a marrow match for him.
