According to Daily mail, witnesses saw an unidentified Nigerian-American woman, believed to be in her 20s or 30s, pushing a stroller out of a northbound 1 train at Columbus Circle at about 11:50am.
The woman then darted back on the train just before the doors shut, leaving the approximately 7-month-old baby girl on her own.
Surveillance footage released showed the woman entering the subway with the baby in the stroller earlier in the day.
A 33-year-old bystander stayed with the baby for 20 minutes, waiting for the woman to return. When no one came to claim the child, the witness contacted the police.
Special thanks to my mum, Mrs. S.O Lawal, even when the going was very tough you never attempted throwing me off a parking bus let alone the moving one. And to all the caring mothers out there who has suffered/suffering a lot to raise their children and never give up on them. You are the best, May you all live long to reap the fruit of your Labour!
