NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police late Friday had been questioning a Queens family all day, after a 3-week-old baby boy was found dead in the courtyard of an apartment building.
As CBS2’s Scott Rapoport reported, investigators were trying to determine whether the infant was thrown from a window, and sources said police believe that is exactly what happened.
Police responding to a 911 call found little Rizwan Ahmad unconscious and unresponsive in the courtyard of 85-55 115th St., near Myrtle Avenue, in Richmond Hill around 4 a.m. Friday, the NYPD said.
The baby, who was wearing a onesie, was discovered on the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neighbors were aghast.
“Oh my God, that’s horrible. That is terrible,” one neighbor said.
The horrified neighbors told 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera that the infant was thrown out of a window of an apartment on the top floor of the four-story building, where he lived with his family.Comments
