A newborn infant was pronounced dead yesterday after responders found the child unconscious in a small Long Island City hotel, according to police.

The baby girl was found lying unconscious and unresponsive by EMS inside a hotel room at Days Inn, located at 31-36 Queens Blvd., at around 7:40 p.m. on July 18, police say.

The responders took the infant and her 35-year-old mother, who was at the scene, to Elmhurst General Hospital, where the baby was pronounced dead on arrival just before 8:20 p.m., an NYPD spokesperson said.

No arrests have been made in the case, and the investigation is ongoing.

An NYPD spokesperson could not provide information on what could have lead to the child’s death, and said it is pending a report from the New York City Medical Examiner.

The 35-year-old mother had reportedly been living at the hotel since April, and the room she stayed in was found with “drug paraphernalia,” according to the New York Post.

That poor child didn’t stand a chance with a junkie mother living in the shelter system.


So many fails here to list. Predictable and sad. For starters, these places should be called what they are. Shelters, not hotels.
