Baby Dies After Teen Mom Throws the Newborn Out of a Two-Story Window
A teenager threw her premature baby out of a second-story window on Friday, police said.
The 16-year-old reportedly went into labor in the early hours of the morning and gave birth to the baby alone in her bedroom. She then tossed the baby out of the window before telling her mom what happened, according to a police report.
The teen reportedly went into a panic after the unexpected birth.
Anthony Goode, 21, who lives in the building where the incident occurred told the Omaha World-Herald that his girlfriend woke him up when she heard an ambulance and that he looked out a window to see two women and a medic carrying a baby to an ambulance.
“I saw one (of the women) saying ‘My baby, my baby,’ ” Goode said. “It was terrifying.”
Police arrived to the scene just after 4 a.m. to find the teen’s mom administering CPR to the baby in the parking lot of the apartment complex. The baby, however, was transported to the Creighton University Medical Center and pronounced dead shortly after.
The teen was also transferred to the hospital for medical evaluation.
Autopsy results are expected in a few days and charges are pending the results of the investigation, police said.
Police have not released the name of the teen and said they are not commenting further at this time.
