A newborn baby who was discovered outside a Queens home on Sunday was allegedly thrown out a window by his mother who had just given birth to him.
The baby boy – who also suffered hypothermia – remained in critical but stable condition Monday.
The baby was discovered with his umbilical cord still attached outside a home on 126th Street in South Ozone Park around 10:15 a.m. Sunday and taken to Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
Investigators determined the infant’s 23-year-old mother, Sabita Dookram, birthed him in the bathtub.
Allegedly, the baby was then tossed out the bathroom window.
Police sources say she underwent a psychological evaluation at a hospital.
She was hit with a total of seven criminal charges.
Those charges include attempted murder, attempted manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, abandonment of a child and acting in a manner to injure a child.
A next-door neighbor revealed that she knows the baby’s mother but “didn’t notice she was pregnant.”
She also commented that she was unaware of a husband in the picture.
This is a developing story.
