3-Year-Old Girl Dies After Fall From Bathroom Window in Queens

QUEENS — The 3-year-old girl who fell from a fifth-floor bathroom window inWoodside Sunday has died, the NYPDsaid.

Rusroshi Barua fell from the window at 53-01 32nd Ave., where she lived, just after 2:30 p.m. She was taken to Elmhurst Hospital and was pronounced dead a few hours later, police said. 

Rusroshi and her sibling apparently locked themselves inside of a bathroom in their apartment, officials and witnesses said. After discovering the children were trapped, the children's parents frantically called the building's superintendent.

By the time they opened the door, however, Rusroshi had already fallen, authorities said.

The other child, whose identity has not been released, was in the bathroom and unharmed, police said.

Police believe the fall was accidental, but cops are still investigating.
