NYC Teenager Charged after Murdering Newborn Son

A 17-year-old teenager in the Bronx was charged with murder and manslaughter on Thursday for killing her 1-day-old son after she threw the newborn out her fifth-floor window.

According to New York authorities, the teenager threw her son out of her fifth-floor apartment window on East 158th Street in Concourse Village on October 24, 2021.

Police immediately showed up at Lincoln Medical Center around 3 PM after the teenager told them she had given birth inside her apartment.

Police raced to her home when hospital staff called 911, but they saw the 1-day-old baby unconscious and unresponsive in a flower bed and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The medical examiner ruled the child’s death to be a homicide after suffering multiple blunt force trauma injuries to the chest and a lacerated liver which caused internal bleeding.

Attorney information was not immediately available for the teenager, whose name was hidden due to her status as a minor.
