in East Elmhurst homeless shelter

shelter for families, located at 94-00 Ditmars Blvd. in East Elmhurst.
Officers from the 115th Precinct, in responding to a call for assistance,
found the baby girl and boy, both two months old, unconscious and unresponsive
in the shelter lobby. Both children were said to be in cardiac arrest,
according to a WABC-TV report.
Paramedics rushed the babies to NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, where
they were both pronounced dead. The Medical Examiner will determine the
cause of their deaths.

found them unconscious and called for help.
Police have withheld the infants’ identities.
No charges have been filed at this time, and the investigation is ongoing.

“My heart breaks for the loss of these children, a boy and a girl who were
just two-months old and had their entire lives ahead of them,” said City Councilman
Francisco Moya. “This tragedy marks the second and third deaths
tied to The Landing in just two months. With shelter should come safety but
residents and neighbors of The Landing have concerns and deserve answers
about what is happening inside the facility. That’s why I’m calling for a full
investigation into the security practices at this shelter. Additionally, I want
to know what CAMBA, which operates the shelter, is doing to keep residents
and neighbors safe.”
