According to the NYPD, the woman then got back on the train, leaving the baby, believed to be 6- to 7-months old, alone in her stroller on the subway platform.

A passerby stayed with the child for 10 to 20 minutes, thinking the woman would come back. The kind stranger then called police.

The little girl was taken to Roosevelt Hospital. She is in the custody of Children’s Services.

The woman is being questioned by police. Charges are pending.
