·1 min read

A 2-year-old girl died after she was found in her room late Monday at a Harlem homeless shelter.

Police, responding to a 911 call, found Mariya Huebler unconscious and unresponsive at 30 Hamilton Place about 11:40 p.m., authorities said.

Mariya had no obvious signs of trauma. Medics took her to Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital, but she couldn’t be saved.

An autopsy will determine her cause of death, police said.

The shelter is run by HELP USA, a non-profit organization founded by Gov. Cuomo in the 1980s. His sister, Maria Cuomo Cole, chairs the board of directors.

In the early 2010s, the shelter was plagued by deteriorating safety and health conditions, including damaged walls, poor housekeeping and crib-related problems. In February 2014, a 3-month-old girl died after she was rushed from the shelter in cardiac arrest.
