The body of a woman in her 30s and a newborn baby girl were found in the parking lot of an apartment building in Tokyo's Meguro Ward on Friday morning, police said, adding that the woman apparently jumped from an exterior stairwell.
A passerby saw the two bodies at around 6:40 a.m. and called 119, Livedoor News reported. The woman and the infant were taken to hospital where the baby was pronounced dead. The woman is in a coma.
Police said the woman and her child lived in the building and are treating the incident as a murder-suicide attempt.© Japan Today
