Monday morning, a woman decided to abandon her 7-month-old baby girl at the Columbus Circle subway stop in New York City. According to witnesses, the woman pushed the baby out of a train onto the platform, then jumped back onto the train.
A good Samaritan saw the baby alone in her stroller and waited for someone to claim her. But after 20 minutes, Catherine Boursier contacted the MTA. The baby was taken to the hospital and was reported to be in good health.
The baby was taken to a nearby hospital and other than a reported rash appears to be in good health. The little girl was given to the Administration for Children’s Services, police told the Daily News. The mother who was described as a black woman and in her 20s or 30s, is now in police custody.
