Baby survives woman's leap in apparent suicide
A woman holding a baby boy fell eight stories out of a New York City apartment window to her death in an apparent suicide, but the baby survived, police said.
Police found the 45-year-old woman with the baby in her arms. An officer took the baby to a hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition. The baby was believed to be about 10 months old.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The apartment window was open, and there were no signs of struggle inside.
Area resident Steven Dominguez (18) was walking to a grocery store with his mother when he saw the woman fall.
"I heard a scream like a yell," Dominguez said. "When I got closer, I saw the baby crying."
