A 4-year-old girl died in the Bronx on Saturday after she toppled out of a fourth-floor window into a parking lot behind her building, police said.
Helena Flores fell from a five-story apartment building on E. 140th St. near Cypress Ave. in Mott Haven just before 5 p.m.
A handful of relatives were in the apartment when the tot fell out of the window, which apparently was open, cops said.
Helena was being watched by her 18-year-old aunt when she managed to climb atop an air conditioning unit in the lower part of the window, said police.
Then she squeezed through the space above the air conditioner and fell to the pavement below, cops said.
“Police were giving the baby CPR,” said a resident of the building who asked not to be named. “As they were trying to do it, one of them just picked her up and started running.”
Medics rushed Helena to Lincoln Medical Center but doctors were unable to save her.
Police did not expect to charge anyone in the death.
“I have a baby. This is your worst nightmare,” said the building resident.
Neighbors on the fourth floor said they didn’t know what had happened until detectives rapped on their door and asked if they knew the family.
“I didn’t know them, but my heart goes out to them,” said a neighbor who asked not to be named. “The family usually keeps to themselves.”
