Baby survives!

A woman was arrested for tossing her hours-old baby down a trash shoot inside the Whitman Houses on May 22.

The baby survived the eight-story plunge inside the building on Cumberland Walk near Carlton Avenue, and was rescued by a Housing Authority employee who heard the tot’s muffled cries inside the trash compactor at 9:30 am.

The baby, a boy, still had his umbilical cord attached — and doctors at Brooklyn Hospital estimated that he was between 12 and 15 hours old.

The mother, Laquasia Wright, is facing attempted homicide charges.

Where: 102 Cumberland Walk
