NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A baby was found dead outside a building in the Bronx Monday afternoon, apparently after being dropped out of a window.
As CBS2’s Valerie Castro reported, it was a heartbreaking scene as the newborn infant was brought out of the building and placed into a New York City Medical Examiner’s office van.
Around 2:20 p.m., the newborn baby girl was found by the superintendent’s wife in the rear of the building at 130 W. 183rd St., in the University Heights section of the Bronx, police sources told CBS2.
Sources said the umbilical cord was still attached. The girl was born inside the apartment, sources said.
Investigators found video showing the child falling from a seventh-floor window, sources said. The window itself was out of frame, but it was believed the child was thrown, sources said.
It was not clear whether the child was born alive or when she was born, or why she was thrown from the window, sources said.
