Despite frantic efforts to save her, a 5-month-old girl died suddenly in Astoria early on Friday morning, police said.

According to law enforcement sources, the parents of Malak Aitouhanni noticed that their child was in medical distress inside an apartment house on 34th Street near 30th Avenue at 3:19 a.m. on Feb. 3 and called 911 for assistance.

 

Instead of waiting for EMS to arrive, however, they managed to get a cab and rushed the child to Mount Sinai Queens Hospital, police sources stated.

Officers from the 114th Precinct arrived at the home moments later and were directed to Mount Sinai Queens, where they learned that Aitouhanni had died while undergoing treatment by medical staff.

Her body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Police said there were no obvious signs of trauma.
