BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Police Department family is asking for your prayers for baby Luke Allen. Luke is the son of two BRPD Officers, Kirt and Tamron Allen. He was born on August 24, 2015.

The Allens just learned that Luke has a heart issue that requires immediate surgery.

He was flown Friday morning to Boston Children's Hospital for open heart surgery and his parents had to take a separate flight to meet him there.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for travel expenses, and hospital bills. In just one day, the family has received more than $13,000 of their $25,000 goal.
