A 6-month-old baby girl was found dead on Monday night in an apartment building on Queens Boulevard in Rego Park.

Police officers responded to a 911 call at 10:23 p.m. of an unconscious baby.

Upon arrival, officers found the infant, who was in the care of an adult, unconscious and unresponsive.

EMS also responded to the scene and transported the child to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The child showed no visible signs of trauma or injury and an investigation is ongoing.

The medical examiner has yet to determine the cause of death.

Police could not confirm who was with the child at the time of her death but reportedly she was with family members.

It is still unclear if there is any criminal activity involved in the infant’s death.

The identity of the child and the family was not immediately available pending proper notification of relatives.
