    This is very sad and very strange.

    "A one-month-old baby boy died after he was found unresponsive underneath the body of his unconscious babysitter at his Long Island home.

    The baby is the child of Michael Baldwin II, a News 12 reporter and host of the program "Diverse Long Island."

    Baldwin told NBC New York the babysitter, 39-year-old Teresa Coffey, was an acquaintance of his wife and had been asking for an opportunity to watch the infant. When Baldwin was called into work Thursday, he said he was in a bind and felt he had no other option but to ask Coffey to babysit."

    Oh my gosh, how horrible. I wonder if she had a heart attack or something... while she was holding him.

    Oh my... That is awful, beyond tragic.

    However, maybe I've been reading here to long but man something doesn't seem right about this. Where in heavens name was baby's mom, this little guy was only 1 month old and he had a really hard first month of life, having to be in the hospital for weeks after he was born. To leave him with someone whom was only an acquaintance of Mom?? WTH.

    The sitter calls Dad at work to say baby is crying and really fussy in a voicemail cause Dad didn't answer his phone. I'm sorry but if my baby was with a sitter at any age let alone being a sickly 1 month old, I sure the heck would answer my phone no matter what my job was. Dad calls back and there is no answer... He leaves work and by time he gets home both are deceased with baby UNDER the sitter. It makes no sense, I would like to see the autopsy results for both baby and sitter.

    Did she kill the baby unintentionally while trying to get him to settledown and then take her own life??? How far away from home did Dad work? Again where is Mom? What was so important at work to leave baby with a practical stranger? If it was editing or something to do with his show, could he not have brought the baby with him? I understand with baby's medical history bringing him out may not be the best option but it sure beats the alternative, if it's that important for him to be at work.

    I pray that Mom and Dad find the strength and courage they will need during this awful time. I don't think there are any words of comfort for a parent who loses a child.

    RIP littleman

    This is one of those stories that just completely tugs at my heart strings. I will definitely be keeping this family in my prayers.

    I, also, wondered where the mother was. That was my first thought.

    Being from Long Island, I have access to the News 12 site. The posters on the message board indicated this was their first child (after mom being told she would never have children) and the mother was hospitalized for post-partum complications at the time of the incident. Just so tragic!
