JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a 2-year-old girl was found dead in a New Jersey home.

Officials confirmed the toddler was found dead inside the Jersey City home around noon on Tuesday.

Neighbor Ineasha Gleaton says she called 911 when the mother knocked on her door and laid the baby on her bed.

Fellow neighbor Chadita Peneiro tells WNBC-TV the hysterical mother then rang her door bell and tossed the cold, lifeless child into her arms. Peneiro says the girl had foam coming from her mouth.

Hudson County prosecutors have not identified the girl or her mother.

Authorities plan to try to determine the girl’s cause of death.
