Chicago authorities are investigating after a woman allegedly jumped from the 11th floor of an apartment building with a baby in her arms, after leaving another baby in a bathtub and stabbing her father numerous times.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the incident happened at a high-rise apartment building off of the 7200 block of South Shore Drive at around 1:45 a.m. on Thursday.

Inside the apartment building, authorities found a 2-year-old toddler in a bathtub unresponsive and a 70-year-old man in critical condition. The elderly man told police that his daughter stabbed him numerous times before jumping from the building with her son in her arms.
Both children were rushed to the Comer Children’s Hospital where they were pronounced dead, according to CBS Chicago. The suspect’s father, who had stab wounds all over his body, is currently in the hospital in critical condition. The suspect remains in the hospital, in critical condition.
Investigators have not said whether the 2-year-old was the suspect’s child. His cause of death is also unclear at this time.
