A 1-year-old girl is dead and her twin brother is critically hurt after police say they were found with severe body trauma inside a Queens apartment.

The children’s 30-year-old mother is in police custody. So far, no charges have been filed.

Police said they were called to a home shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Sources told CBS2 the woman lived in the basement unit with five children, all under the age of 10. She was the only adult home at the time and was the one who called 911, sources said.

Police said officers found the little girl, identified as 1-year-old Elaina Torabi, unconscious and unresponsive and rushed her to Flushing Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Her brother was taken to Cohen Children’s Medical Center in critical condition.

The Administration for Children’s Services removed three other girls, ages 2, 4, and 5, from the home, unharmed. Sources told CBS2 there was no ACS history at the house.

Neighbor Judanna Cavallo told CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis the children’s mother “was completely distraught and falling down to her knees on the pavement.”

She described the woman as “beautiful, vivacious, outgoing, friendly.”

“With five children, I told her if at any time she ever needed anyone to turn to, day or night – even if it’s the middle of the night – that I’d always be here for her,” she added.

Cavallo said she tried to console the older children.

The medical examiner’s office will determine the girl’s cause of death as the investigation continues.

A viciously beaten 1-year-old girl was found dead inside a Queens home Wednesday night in a sickening discovery that came just two days after ACS workers had visited the residence, police sources said.

Elania Torabi suffered bruises to her head and genitals, a large wound on her abdomen and blisters and open lesions across her tiny body, police sources said.

The toddler’s twin brother, Keon, suffered equally horrific injuries, such as broken ribs, bruises on his groin, a broken hip and lacerated liver, but managed to survive the injuries.

The mother, Tina Torabi, was charged late Thursday with assault for the injuries Keon — while cops were still grilling her about Alania’s death at the 111th Precinct as they awaited autopsy results, sources said.

The house of horrors was discovered at about 10 p.m. Wednesday, after the 30-year-old mom of five dialed 911.

Elaina was found unconscious in the family’s basement apartment and was later declared dead at Flushing Hospital, while her brother was taken to Cohen Children’s Medical Center, where he is listed in critical but stable condition, sources said.

Torabi’s three other children — Mila, 2, Nadia, 4, and Ariana, 5 — were placed in the care of the Administration of Children’s Services. Mila had a burn on her right ankle, while the other kids were being evaluated.

The 1-year-old’s gruesome death came just two days after ACS officials had visited the home, which sits in a tree-lined, suburban neighborhood in Auburndale.

ACS had launched an investigation a few years ago into Torabi’s alleged drug use and abuse of the stimulant Adderall, sources said.

Elaina had the prescription pills in her system when she was born Aug. 27, 2017, sources added.

At one point, Torabi had some of her children taken away from her, but they were returned after she underwent treatment to kick her addiction, sources said.

The children’s father, Mohammed Reza Torabi, is estranged from the family. An order of protection had been issued against him, according to sources.

Efforts to reach him were unsuccessful.

The city’s Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet determined a cause in Elaina’s death

As police and rescue workers struggled to save the injured children, neighbors saw the mother run outside screaming hysterically.

“She was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe this is happening, oh my God, save the baby,’ ” said one witness who gave his name as Sal. “She fell to the floor crying. She was kneeling like she was praying.”

The mom was overcome with grief as her babies were loaded into ambulances, according to neighbor Judanna Cavallo.

Reza Razavi, the owner of the two-story home, said he saw Torabi a couple of months ago and that she appeared “normal.”

“As far as I know, she lived alone with five kids,” Razavi said. “I was just helping her out to get out of her mess.”

She pumped out five babies in five years, and was the sole caretaker. That would be a lot for anyone to handle. I am surprised that the victim was the youngest... only 14 months old. They usually aren't super obnoxious at that age. If one of the kids was going to enrage her, I would have guessed it would be one of the toddlers going through the NO stage.

The D.A.'s office said police found a filthy basement apartment where the mother, the twins and three other children lived. Prosecutors said a butcher knife was out, there was a cough syrup bottle on the floor, and other bottles and garbage strewn about.

Prosecutors also described a dirty mattress without covers, a filthy fridge and even dirty car seat on the floor.

They did not, however, spell out exactly what happened to the twin toddlers that led to the multiple scratches, fractures and internal injuries found on both of their bodies. Law enforcement sources previously told News 4 that the girl had a puncture wound laceration to the back of her head, and a laceration to her stomach, as well as cigarette burns. The boy, meanwhile, has several cracked ribs and a fractured pelvis, contusions on his lungs, a healing bite mark and other injuries, according to the D.A.'s office.

A New York man jumped to his death from atop a 17-story hotel on Saturday after his young daughter was found dead at the home of his estranged wife.

According to the New York Post, Mohammad Torabi was found dead at about 1:20 p.m. on the ground near the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 in Midtown.

His estranged wife, 30-year-old Tina Torabi, was arrested on suspicion of felony assault after Kian, their son, was found with extensive and serious injuries and Elaina, their daughter, was killed in a beating on Wednesday.

The family reportedly moved to New York from Texas.

The Post cites sources close to the situation who indicate the suspect’s deceased husband had been abusive toward Tina Torabi in the past.

He had allegedly introduced narcotics into the relationship.

So what do we think? He jumped from heartache & guilt over his daughters death or he was in fact the perpetrator & knew it was only a matter of time before mom spilled the beans??

Also crazy the way neighbors describe her as this vivacious loving mother vs how police describe the disgusting house of a druggie mom.

And so much for the initial report that ACS had no prior involvement w this family? This whole case is a confusing mess

I'm leaning more towards he was too chickenshit to face the music and left his 'loving wife' to face it on her own.

The drug-addled Queens mom whose baby daughter was found beaten to death and abused twin son critically injured told The Post on Sunday that her husband attacked the kids before committing suicide.

Tina Torabi, 30, was at first tight-lipped when met by a Post reporter for a jailhouse visit on Rikers Island — then opened up upon learning that hubby Mohammad Torabi had leaped to his death from a Midtown hotel Friday.

The mom — who is charged with the assault of her critically injured 13-month-old son, Kian, while authorities await the autopsy results of the boy’s dead twin sister, Elaina — gasped and wept when told of Mohammad’s suicide.

Covering her mouth with her hands, then clutching them to her stomach as though pained, she nodded when asked if he was the one who really hurt the two youngest of their five kids.

“I was waiting for him to go and confess,” Tina said. “But …” she trailed off, the tears coming harder.

Torabi nodded again when asked if her relationship with Mohammad had been tumultuous, then wiped her eyes, thanked the reporter for the news of her husband and ended the interview.

Some cop sources balked at her trying to pin all the blame on Mohammad, noting that she lied to them when she said she hadn’t seen him — and sent potentially damning text messages to him the day the hell house was uncovered.

“She complained to him how she was gonna f–k up the boy because he would not stop crying,’’ a source said. “We believe she was the aggressor on the boy.”

Another source added, “She claimed [her daughter] burned herself with milk, even denied seeing her husband for other a month.”

But she “was lying,’’ a high-ranking police source said. “She said he hadn’t been there. But he had been seen with his daughter on video around the corner [from the home] at a drug store’’ just days before the Flushing house of horrors was discovered Wednesday night.

Cops had been looking to question Mohammad, a convicted felon with a history of drug use and domestic abuse, since the discovery, but he was nowhere to be found — until Saturday.

Then, his lifeless body was found crumpled on a third-floor air conditioning unit outside the Renaissance New York Hotel on East 57th Street, having leaped to his death sometime Friday, sources said.

Mohammad and Tina Torabi

I will admit they were a pretty couple, but the what the fuck happen? Drugs and violence, do not make for good parenting. I bet you their children are beautiful, as least the ones that survived, that is.

City officials are starting to buy the tale of innocence put forth by Queens House of Horrors mom Tina Torabi — who tearfully told The Post over the weekend that it was really her estranged husband who brutally beat their kids last week, killing one.

“It just makes a lot more sense,” said an official at Administration for Children’s Services, which is looking into the Oct. 3 assault that left 1-year-old Elaina Torabi dead and her twin brother, Kian, seriously injured.

“Her beating the kids just doesn’t add up,” the official added. “Her past is about drugs — while his past is drugs and domestic abuse. This was a battered wife who looked to be trying to get her life back on track.”

ACS sources have also pointed out that dad Mohammad Torabi — who went on the lam after the killing and then leaped to his death from a Midtown hotel Friday — had a violent domestic history and was a convicted felon.

“If you heard your kid died, why go on the run?” an agency source asked. “Why wouldn’t you come forward? But the police will ultimately determine who’s at fault here.”

Mohammad Torabi’s rap sheet included allegations that he choked his wife and bit the children when the family lived in Texas. The critically injured Kian was found with bite marks last week.

The mom — who is charged with assaulting the boy while authorities await the autopsy results of dead sister Elaina — firmly placed the blame on her estranged husband during a jailhouse interview last weekend.

“I was waiting for him to go and confess,” she claimed.

However, cop sources are balking at the drug-addicted mom’s attempt to pin all the blame on her hubby.

“That would be the smartest thing to say,” a law enforcement source said. “But we have nothing to corroborate that at all.”

Not helping her cause are potentially damning text messages she sent her husband saying she was “gonna f–k up the boy” for crying on the same day the hell house was uncovered, a source said.

The death of a 1-year-old girl who appeared to have been horribly beaten when she was found unconscious in her Queens home last October along with her twin brother, who was also badly hurt, has officially been ruled a homicide.

The medical examiner's office said Tuesday that the cause of death for little Elaina Torabi was "fatal child abuse syndrome," which is the term used when a child sustains injuries over a period of time. The mother of the twins, 30-year-old Tina Torabi, was arrested last year on charges of assault, reckless endangerment and child endangerment charges. It wasn't immediately clear if prosecutors would seek to upgrade those charges given the homicide ruling.

The district attorney's office said police found a filthy basement apartment where the mother, the twins and three other children lived. Prosecutors said a butcher knife was out, there was a cough syrup bottle on the floor, and other bottles and garbage strewn about. They also described a dirty mattress without covers, a filthy fridge and even dirty car seat on the floor.

They did not, however, spell out exactly what happened to the twin toddlers that led to the multiple scratches, fractures and internal injuries found on both of their bodies. Law enforcement sources previously told News 4 that the girl had a puncture wound laceration to the back of her head, and a laceration to her stomach, as well as cigarette burns. The boy, meanwhile, has several cracked ribs and a fractured pelvis, contusions on his lungs, a healing bite mark and other injuries, according to the district attorney's office.

A Queens woman pleaded guilty Thursday to charges involving the death of one of her 13-month-old twins — and a life-threatening assault on the other.

Tina Torabi, 30, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter charge for the death of daughter Elaina, who died less than an hour after first responders arrived at her “deplorable, filthy and unsanitary” basement apartment in Flushing, said Queens prosecutors.

Torabi also pleaded guilty to first-degree assault over the beating of her son and Elaina’s twin sibling, Keon.

She faces up to 12 years on the manslaughter charge and eight and a half years on the assault charge when she is sentenced.

Ages 1, 2, and 5

Anyone thinking where is the 3 year old?
