A 27-year-old woman has been charged with second-degree murder after she allegedly threw her 6-month-old baby out a sixth-floor window in New York City on Thursday.

After the baby, identified at Janillah Lawrence, fell from the window, she was rushed by responding officers to a nearby hospital. There, she was pronounced dead at 2:28 PM.

Tenisha Fearon, the girl's mother, was allegedly naked and screaming when officers arrived at her apartment. After Fearon refused to answer the door, the officers were forced to kick it down. A witness said:

"After she threw them out, she was laying on the floor naked. After that she started yelling, 'God help!'"

Witnesses said that Fearon was screaming something about the devil as police escorted her outside of her apartment.

Before dropping the infant, Fearon reportedly dangled her outside the window in front of horrified neighbors. Neighbor Lizette Rodriguez said:

"They were yelling at her, 'Don't do it. Think about it.' She was screaming, 'We're all gonna die.' That's when I figured, 'OK, this is time to call 911.'"

Rodriguez reportedly heard a loud thump as she was dialing 911.

Authorities found a 4-year-old girl, an 8-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy inside Fearon's apartment along with another parent. While the children were not injured, they were taken to a hospital for a precautionary evaluation.

Fearon was taken to Bronx Lebanon Hospital for a mental evaluation. It is not yet clear whether or not she has entered a plea.
