  1. The way the article is written, it sounds as if the baby was unattended and then found. I would venture to believe that someone was with the baby and found the baby to be unresponsive and called 911 for help. No one leaves a 10 week old baby unattended.

  2. Some more info from NBC newsThe baby girl, who has since been identified as Zoey Kaplan of Queens, was with her mother and her mother’s friend at Hawthorne Park, located at Borage Place and Burns Street in Forest Hills, police said. When the mother went to check on Zoey in her stroller, she found the girl vomiting.

  4. If no other cause identified, it’s probably a vaccine reaction. Could be right after a 2 month “well” visit. No one will look at this possibility and report to VAERS because as we all know vaccines are 1000% safe.

  5. Please don’t judge based on few facts. From another news source: “Kaplan’s mother was in the park with her daughter when she noticed her daughters feet were ice cold and that she vomited.”
