Police stop mum from jumping in front of train with her 9 year old daughter

A suicidal mom, 43 year old Gabriella Georgescu, holding her 9-year-old daughter threatened to jump in front of an oncoming subway train in Midtown, New York on Friday. 

According to the Police, Georgesc was raving and ranting about killing herself and her child as she stood close to the edge of the platform at 59th St. and Lexington Ave. just before 5 p.m.

Alarmed passengers and an MTA worker who heard her threats alerted the police. A plainclothes police officer arrived to find Georgescu leaning near the gap as a northbound 6 train rolled into the station, according to cops.

The officer quickly slapped cuffs on her before she could jump, an NYPD spokesman said.
 
Another officer grabbed the little girl, who had bruises on her back was later taken into the custody of the city Administration for Child’s Services. The bruises on the little girl's back, led cops to suspect that she had been abused.

Georgescu, who is believed to have been visiting a relative in the city at the time of her suicide attempt was taken to Bellevue Hospital in New York to be evaluated, authorities said.

Police say she will be charged with reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
