NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A baby boy was found dead in a Midtown hotel Saturday morning, and now police are questioning his step sister and her fiancée.

The two women were not guests at the Hotel Pennsylvania, but were seen wandering in the lobby and through the hallways, police say.

Shortly after 1 a.m., a hotel worker noticed the 4-month-old boy who was with them was not breathing and called 911, according to police.

The two women were also found unresponsive, but were ultimately revived. Police say they appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

The baby, identified as Dominic Greene of Delaware, was pronounced dead at NYU Medical Center.

Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy as they investigate what killed the boy. 

The NYPD says the boy had no obvious signs of trauma. 

The child’s 24-year-old step sister and her 26-year-old fiancée were both taken into custody and are being questioned.
