A 3-day-old girl died after her mother realized she had stopped breathing in their Flushing home on Saturday.

Baby Joyce Liang was found unresponsive at the 136th St. home at around 6 p.m., police say.

Her mother called 911 and police rushed to the scene. Emergency responders performed CPR on the newborn and brought her to NY Presbyterian/Queens Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say foul play is not suspected at this time, and that there were no obvious signs of trauma on the baby’s body. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

Liang’s family does not have a record of Domestic Incident Reports or involvement with the Administration for Children’s services, police say.
