Baby found dead in Bronx home: NYPD

SOUNDVIEW, the Bronx — Police found an unconscious infant in a Bronx home Wednesday evening but don’t believe any criminal activity is involved.

Sources said the baby’s mother left the girl in the care of her sister while she made a quick trip to CVS before 6 p.m.

When she returned, she noticed a small amount of blood on the baby’s face and saw that the baby was unresponsive, police said. Attempts to save the baby through CPR were unsuccessful.

At this time, detectives don’t believe the circumstances surrounding the baby’s death are suspicious.

An investigation is underway.
