A 95-year-old World War II veteran was kicked out of his Boston apartment while recovering from pneumonia.

Ilya Levin has been recovering at a rehab facility. WCVB-TV reported that his family was checking his place Monday when they noticed all his belongings were thrown away.

The only memento Levin has left is his war uniform.

The management company said the items were thrown out by mistake. The family said Levin had paid two months of rent in advance.

The office of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is investigating the matter.
