A young woman died in front of her baby while trying to break into a home through the first-floor window, according to police in Florida.

At 8:30 a.m., St. Petersburg Police officers were called to 2141 15th Avenue South about a baby left abandoned in a stroller.

When officers arrived, they discovered a woman trapped in a side window of the home.

Preliminary information is that the woman appeared to be trying to get into the rear home via a window and became stuck.

Her body became wedged on the window sill and she was found dead in that position. She did not live at that home.

23-year-old Niesha Nicole Annie Henderson was homeless, and had previously stayed at this address a couple of times.

The investigation revealed that Henderson had come to that address earlier that day with her 9-month-old son.

She apparently left her son in the stroller and used a plastic lawn chair and a milk crate to stand upon, and attempted to get into the home through the window that was five feet above ground level.

The chair fell over as Henderson got her head and arms through the window, and she subsequently became wedged on the
window sill.

It is unclear how long Henderson may have been stuck in the window before she died.
