So Sad.

A 16-month-old baby girl, who’d been in a coma since Father’s Day, was reported beaten by her 18-year-old father and has since passed just this past Friday, according to officials from the Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The baby, Nylah Lewis, was found unconscious by her 17-year-old mother when she’d come to pick her up on Sunday, which was Father’s Day, after visiting with her father, Shaquan Taylor. Once the mother, Tammy Lewis, attempted to call 9-1-1, Mr. Taylor allegedly punched her in the face several times before leaving the scene, according to police.

Taylor was later apprehended and Nylah was taken to Coney Island Hospital with a fractured skull, facial wounds and several other injuries. She was later transported to Maimonides, back in Brooklyn.

The father of Nylah remains in jail at Rikers Island, being charged with second-degree assault. This will, however, most likely change being that the child has now died from her crucial injuries.

“We will seek to upgrade the charges in the grand jury,” said Oren Yaniv, a spokesman for the Brooklyn district attorney.

According to one criminal complaint, which was issued by the district attorney, Nylah was found unresponsive and having breathing difficulties when her mother came to pick her up. Taylor claimed that Nylah had fallen off the bed while he was in the shower.

Dr. Ingrid A. Walker-Descartes, a Maimonides child abuse specialist, evaluated Nylah’s injuries and says that her “injuries could not have been caused from falling off a bed, but rather, were inflicted intentionally,” according to the complaint.

Debbie Silberman, a lawyer with Brooklyn Defender Services, declined to make any comment on behalf of her client, Taylor.

A spokesperson with the New York City Administration for Children’s Services wouldn’t say whether they’d had any previous involvement with Nylah, citing that all information was confidential by law.

“The loss of this child is a terrible tragedy,” the spokesman, Jose Bayona, said by email. “We are engaged in an aggressive investigation along with N.Y.P.D.”
