New York Police Department detectives say they are investigating the suspicious death of a one-year-old Albany girl who died after getting stuck between the bed and the hot radiator.
The autopsy performed on one-year-old Gabriela Grimes Wednesday came back inconclusive and the investigation is pending, the Chief Medical Examiner in Manhattan tells NEWS10.
Police say the baby's grandmother, from Manhattan, called 911 after finding the baby girl trapped between the bed and the radiator Tuesday morning with severe burns to her legs and lower extremities. The baby was staying with her grandmother in Manhattan.
Police say the child was transported to St. Luke's Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.
According to the New York Post, it was the baby's first birthday and the grandmother was planning a party for her. The Post reports that the 60-year-old grandmother put the girl to bed Monday evening, then went to check on her around 2 a.m. and she was fine. It was then around 6:15 a.m. the grandmother discovered the baby fell off the bed and was trapped by the radiator.
They say the 3-year-old brother of the baby was also sleeping in the room.
No criminal charges have been filed at this time; however the NYC Administration for Children's Services is investigating whether or not there was any abuse or neglect.
The baby's mother, Lilabeth Grimes, resides on Third Avenue in Albany. Lilabeth and the baby's father, Ed Grimes, own a Latino Food business called Albany Cuchifrito Factory.
The mother tells NEWS10 they are still in New York City Wednesday. They say they're still struggling to come to terms with the loss.
