A woman suspected of abandoning her 10-month-old daughter on a New York City subway platform was being held in Manhattan by police early Tuesday, after she was spotted by a citizen, after authorities distributed her image through the media.

According to cops, the 20-year-old woman, whose name wasn’t released, left the child at the Columbus Circle station in a stroller Monday afternoon, then re-boarded the subway via the No. 1 train.

A Good Samaritan saw the incident and contacted police after spending 20 minutes with the abandoned tot. The mother, who is not from New York, was pointed out by a citizen near West 72nd Street and Broadway. The woman — who told officials she felt she couldn’t continue caring for the baby — is the biological mother, police said.

The child was listed in stable condition at St. Luke's Hospital early Tuesday, and was in the custody of NYC Administration for Children's Services.
