(Newser) – Police are investigating what caused the death of a newborn found in the bedroom of a 14-year-old girl who had kept her pregnancy hidden. The girl's mom rushed her daughter to a local hospital when she began bleeding heavily. The doctor reported an apparent birth, and police arrived at the teen's Brooklyn home to find a dead newborn in a plastic bag stuffed behind the girl's bed, reports the New York Daily News.

An autopsy is being performed. The girl is "not being very cooperative," said a police spokesman. "Parents need to be involved and know what their kids are doing," he added. "You're a mother, a woman, you're supposed to know. If you're just 14 years old, you're a baby yourself." Sadly, this is far from the first time something like this has happened.

The newborn was found in a plastic bag stuffed behind the teen's bed.
