NEW YORK -- Police say a woman holding a baby boy has plunged eight stories out of a New York City apartment window to her death and may have jumped. They say the baby has survived.

The 45-year-old woman was discovered by police Wednesday afternoon. The baby was in her arms. The police officer who responded took the baby to a hospital, where he’s listed in stable condition.

The baby is believed to be about 10 months old. A hospital spokeswoman says she has no immediate information on his condition.

Police say the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The apartment window was wide open, and there were no signs of struggle inside. There were no safety bars on the windows of the upper Manhattan apartment.
