Nanny Collapses And Suffocates Baby

This story absolutely breaks my heart. A TV reporter whose one-month-old son died after he was suffocated when his morbidly obese babysitter collapsed and died on top of him has spoken of his horror of discovering his dead baby.

Michael Baldwin II, who works at New York station News 12, said he had asked Teresa Coffey, 39, to look after his soon after he was called into work on Thursday. He called several times but got no answer, he raced back to his home in Greenlawn, Long Island and found both the baby Michael Baldwin III and Ms Coffey dead. When he failed to find his one-month-old son he returned to the living room where Ms Coffey was, ‘slumped on the couch, face down, her knees on the floor,’ he told the New York Post.

 

What is most heart breaking was the baby was in the hospital after suffering from medical complications at birth – she offered to babysit.Mr Baldwin said he got a message from the 39-year-old at work saying she needed to talk to him. After calling back ‘dozens of times’ with no response, he returned home to find Ms Coffey collapsed. When he failed to find his one-month-old son he returned to the living room where Ms Coffey was, ‘slumped on the couch, face down, her knees on the floor,’ he told the New York Post. ‘I just had this funny feeling she was on top of him.

‘I lifted her and he was underneath. He was lying on his back with his hands folded on his stomach. Ms Coffey was a friend of his wife.
