A deranged mother accused of throwing her newborn daughter and toddler son from a second-floor window has been charged with attempted murder.
24-year-old Dejhanay Jarrell threw her kids from the window at around 11:20 am Saturday in Brooklyn, police said.
According to the New York Post, the naked mother continued to pound the child’s head into the ground as she was ‘tired of being by herself.’
Fortunately, neighbor Carl Chin, 41, intervened and saved the children.
Speaking to Daily Mail, Chin said he was in bed talking to his fiancé when they heard a baby crying.
“Within seconds we heard a thump, like the body just hits the ground. So she jumps up to the window and sees the two kids on the floor,” he recalled.
Chin said the mother seemed to return to reality when he separated them. She even thanked him while asking him to take good care of her newborn.
Ambulances and police rushed to the scene after Chin contacted 911.
The young girl was rushed to Maimonides Hospital in critical condition while the mother and her toddler son were taken to Brookdale Hospital.
“I run to the back and I see the mom has the child in one hand and she drops her. The infant. She drops the infant a couple of times,” he said.
“I kind of forcefully took the baby from her, using my forearm, and got her to loosen her grip with the baby. We exchanged a few words and within the seconds the FDNY and ambulance came and took care of it,” he said.
“I wasn’t even thinking, I just reacted because I couldn’t even believe what I was seeing.”
Jarrell was charged with two counts of assault, two counts of attempted murder, two counts of reckless endangerment and acting in a manner dangerous to a child.
