In a heartbreaking incident, two newborn babies were discovered lifeless at a daycare center in Chicago. The police were alerted after a cleaning crew stumbled upon the infants inside a bathroom at the facility. The authorities have launched investigations into the deaths to determine the cause of their tragic demise.
Chicago police responded to a distress call at around 6:59 p.m. on Thursday at a child care center located in the Streeterville neighborhood. Upon arrival, they found two newborn girls unresponsive inside a trash bag. Dispatchers had informed the officers about the babies’ presence in the bag, and it was evident that the infants were not breathing when first responders arrived. The girls were immediately rushed to Lurie Children’s Hospital, where they were tragically pronounced deceased.
During the investigation, a woman was discovered inside the daycare center. According to sources close to the investigation, the 29-year-old woman abruptly left her class at the childcare center before being discovered in a first-floor bathroom. Co-workers found her and immediately called for an ambulance. The woman, who is employed by Bright Horizons, is currently receiving medical treatment for an emergency situation.
The childcare center released a statement expressing their deep sorrow over the tragic incident. They revealed that the medical emergency unexpectedly resulted in the birth of twin babies. The center is providing emotional and mental health support to all staff members and families affected by the incident. They have requested respect and support during this difficult time as they grieve and cooperate with any ongoing investigations.
The Chicago Police Department’s Area Three detectives are leading the investigation, which was initially classified as endangering the life or health of children. As of now, no suspects have been taken into custody. The police have not released any information regarding the age or race of the infants that were found. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday to shed light on the cause of the newborns’ deaths.
