Tragedy in Washington Heights

Man Stabs a Baby Girl in Her Stroller [NYT]


"A man with a knife walked up to a nanny pushing a 10-month-old girl in a stroller in Washington Heights last evening and plunged a knife into the baby's stomach, critically injuring her, the police said...

The nanny, a 20-year-old woman, according to the police, screamed for help and cradled the baby, who was bleeding profusely, in her arms. She flagged down a car and was about to get in when a police cruiser arrived and drove them four blocks south to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital."

Goo, nanny! What a hero!
