2020 has sadly started with tragedy in the New York City shelter system. On January 11, 2020, it was reported that 2-month old boy/girl twins died at a family shelter located near LaGuardia Airport. The death of the twins at The Landing Hotel is the second reported tragic occurrence at the shelter in two months. Just this last November, a 38-year old man was fatally stabbed outside of The Landing Hotel.
According to the New York Post, the father of the twins said that he put the babies in their cribs for a nap, and when he checked on them a few hours later they were unresponsive. The babies were later declared dead at Elmhurst Hospital.
Deepest condolences to the family.
