New York mom throws 1-month-old out window of 4th floor apartment

New York Police Probe If Month-Old Baby Thrown From Fourth Floor

Rashida Chowdhury -- a 21-year-old mother living in Queens, New York -- threw her newborn son out of the bathroom window of her apartment last week around 4 a.m. The baby died from blunt impact injuries.

Chowdhury's son Rizwan had just returned home from a four-day long stay in the hospital, where he was being treated for a viral infection.

Chowdhury's neighbor reportedly heard the child fall to the ground, and the mother told authorities that she threw her son out of the window because she was "stopping the pain."

The mother has been charged with murder.
