RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond mother is facing charges after she allegedly dropped her 11-month-old baby from her apartment window.

Richmond Police received calls around 6:40 on Thursday night from the Belt Atlantic Apartment Complex off of Midlothian Turnpike.

Neighbors were left stunned, saying they heard a woman yell 'I'm going to drop her'. The yells were enough to get the attention of a few people outside.

One man said that he saw the woman holding the baby out of a third-story window about 20 feet off the ground. He ran towards the window to try and catch the little girl.

He said he managed to keep the infant's head from hitting the ground.

Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett that the baby, at last check, was stable at a local hospital.

The baby's mother, Mychae Delores Goode has been charged with felony child abuse and neglect of a child and is being held without bond.
