BROOKLYN, NEW YORK: On Saturday, June 12, a mother was accused of throwing her newborn daughter and toddler son out the window of her second-floor apartment in New York City. According to authorities, the mother, who has not been identified, was naked when she flung her two-year-old son and one-month-old daughter out the window before jumping out herself at 11.20 am in Brooklyn's Brownsville area.

In a similar incident earlier, a Queens mom was accused of throwing her newborn out of the bathroom window moments after giving birth. Yet another incident of maternal brutality towards children reported earlier was that of Bryunna Joyce, who filmed herself beating a newborn and sent the videos to the baby's dad. Last year, we reported that a Virginia mom, Noah Tomlin, dismembered and butchered her 2-year-old son. Another Georgia mom, Trinity Pittman, allegedly killed her infant son for soiling his diaper.

Who is Dejhanay Jarrell?

In the most recent case, Dejhanay Jarrell, the distraught 24-year-old mother of two, threw her newborn daughter out the window before sending her son out as well. After they fell, witnesses stated Jarrell kept slamming the baby's head on the concrete. Both the children and their mother were completely naked. It was then that her heroic neighbor Carl Chin jumped in to try to save the children.

Carl Chin, 41, lives behind the alley of 178 Rockaway Parkway. He told Daily Mail that he was resting in bed with his fiancee when they heard the crying of a baby. "Within seconds we heard a thump, like the body just hits the ground. So she jumps up to the window and sees the two kids on the floor," he said. Following this, Chin's fiancee screamed as she ran out of the house shouting "Call 911! Call 911!"

"I run to the back and I see the mom has the child in one hand and she drops her. The infant. She drops the infant a couple of times," Chin said. He claimed he jumped over the railing barefoot in an attempt to capture the mother, who was seated with the baby in a 'headlock'. He then "forcefully took the baby from her" and got her to loosen her grip on the infant before the FDNY and ambulance came in. The aftermath of the frightening incident was caught on cell phone video. Once he had a hold of the baby, he asked Jarrell what was wrong. “She actually said, ‘Please take care of my baby, take care of my daughter,’ after throwing them out the window. So there was the sign right there. Mentally she wasn’t stable,” he said.

"I wasn't even thinking, I just reacted because I couldn't even believe what I was seeing," Chin said. He told reporters outside the house that the toddler appeared to be in excellent shape following the incident and that he 'wasn't crying' or 'moaning in pain'. The infant, on the other hand, appeared to be clinging to life. He added that Jarrell then appeared to return to reality and thanked him, asking him to look after her daughter.

"I have no idea what was going on with the mom. I had never met her or seen her prior to this but she clearly is not in the right state of mind. She must have been having some kind of mental breakdown because they were all naked," he said.  

After hearing a child scream and a boom outside her home, Chin's sister-in-law, Shandie Harrison claimed she dashed to the scene in a panic. She also watched the mother grab the baby's leg and stomp her head twice on the ground. “The mom was asking for help. I can see that she was depressed,” Harrison told NY Daily News. “I think that she wanted to kill the baby, but she wasn’t in her right mind. We are all females and I don’t want her to be judged. We all go through our depression, our stress and stuff like that,” she added. “Honestly it’s painful and it’s sad. I felt it for her."

According to Harrison, the little baby was gushing from her ear, and the young boy had injuries on his forehead and knee but was not crying. Jarrell was arrested on Saturday, June 12, and charged with two charges of attempted murder, two charges of assault and two charges of child endangerment.
