THE BRONX (PIX11) — The mother of a toddler found abandoned on a Bronx street corner has been arrested.
Diana Paniagua, 29, of the Bronx, has been charged with reckless endangerment and abandonment of a child, the authorities said.
Authorities say the child, who appears to be about two-years-old, was found sitting in a blue stroller on the corner of East 141 Street and Rider Avenue at about 5:30 a.m.
Witnesses say they saw a young woman with a light complexion and black hair pushing the boy in the stroller earlier. The woman was dressed in all black and had her hair pulled up in a bun.
The child was taken Lincoln Hospital for observation and is now in the custody of Child Services.
