(Scroll down for video) A young child is dead after being cut with a circular saw by her grandmother.

The 52-year-old woman of Chicago, Illinois, was arrested after police were called to the 2800 block of South Avers Avenue on the West Side around 9:30 a.m.

Police found the 7-month-old girl dead in the home. She was killed by her grandmother, who was babysitting the child.

The baby girl, who was identified as Rose Herrera, died after her grandmother allegedly cut her throat with a circular saw.

The grandmother allegedly attempted to kill herself, but was discovered by a family member. She was taken to the Mt. Sinai hospital, where she is under police watch.

Police said that the 52-year-old woman attempted to shove something into the baby’s mouth, possibly cloth, to get the girl to stop crying, but when that failed, the woman allegedly cut her throat, killing the child instantly.
