A teenage girl threw her premature baby out of a second-storey window minutes after giving birth.

The 16-year-old reportedly went into labour in the early hours of Friday morning and gave birth alone in her bedroom, reports 7 NEWS.

Police allege she then tossed the newborn out of the window, before telling her mother what had happened.

The woman ran outside, found the baby in the grass and called 911.

Omaha police say they were called to the eastern Omaha apartment shortly after 4 am where they found a woman administering CPR to the infant.

The baby and 16-year-old were taken to Creighton University Medical Center, where the baby was pronounced dead.

Police say autopsy results are expected in several days, and that charges are pending.

Autopsy results are expected in a few days and charges are pending the results of the investigation, police said.

Police have not released the name of the teen and said they are not commenting further at this time.

  • What on earth? Mental health checks should be necessary to have kids!


  • Atrocious! Did nobody know about her pregnancy? 16 years old? She is really young. She was probably scared but so sad that she made this horrible decision. :-(


  • Such an act of desperation ! Sad that she thought this is the only way to deal with it and that she wasn’t able to turn to anyone in this time of need


  • Oh this is so very tragic.
    I suspect that she had managed to keep her pregnancy hidden from everyone.
    That poor girl to be pregnant and feel that you cant tell your Mother and then to go through labour alone and I guess be so paniced that you would do something like this.
    Poor darling.


  • So sad that this perfect innocent little baby never had a chance at life. They never got to experience any of their first. It’s horrible that the mother felt she was alone in this world. In years to come she will feel so guilty. Rest in the arms of angels beautiful <3


  • So terrible that the girl had to go through this alone. Rip little one


  • how sad they thought that was their only option. R.I.P little one


  • Some “don’t show” for longer than others. I know an expectant Mum who went for her normal check-up many years ago. Her own Dr. was away so she saw a Locum. She walked in and sat down. The Dr. asked her what he could help her with. She was nearly 7 months and wasn’t that obvious. I might add that when she went down with the baby in the pram a lot of people didn’t believe the baby was hers. However the baby was 6 weeks early.


  • I would forgive the teen for getting pregnant, but not for killing the baby.


  • I wonder if the teenagers mother knew her daughter was pregnant? It’s amazing to think that her daughter kept her pregnancy a secret. If she had known maybe the young girl could have had counselling and given the child up for adoption!


  • This is so sad on so many levels.
