NEW YORK CITY — Tragedy struck in New York City on Monday when a woman carrying her 1-year-old daughter in a stroller fell down the subway steps and died. Her child sustained minor injuries.

Malaysia Goodson was found unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of the southbound 7th Avenue B, D and E station stairs just before 8 p.m.

The 22-year-old Stamford, Connecticut mother was rushed to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
