    Police found a barely breathing newborn boy outside a home on 126th St. near 107th Ave. in South Ozone Park on Sunday, leading to the shocking details revealed by the mum upon her arrest.

    “I gave birth yesterday afternoon. I cut the cord with a scissor from the bathroom,” Dookram told police according to a criminal complaint.

    “I panicked and threw it out of the bathroom window. I did not check on the baby, I put my clothes in the laundry hamper in the bathroom, I showered and went to sleep,” she told cops, according to the complaint.

    Authorities said the baby boy is on a ventilator in critical condition amd has been transferred from Jamaica Hospital to Cohen Children’s Medical Center.


    According to police, an exam revealed he suffered a traumatic brain injury, with bleeding and swelling to his brain and scalp, as well as an abdominal injury with internal bleeding.

    “This is a heartbreaking situation. A newborn baby has suffered greatly because of the alleged actions of his mother, who now faces serious charges and a lengthy prison sentence,” Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said.
