Three newborn babies and two adults were stabbed during a pre-dawn attack at a suspected illegal childcare center in NY on Friday, allegedly carried out by a female employee, police said.

The woman suspected in the attack was discovered bleeding and unconscious in the basement, and after officers applied a tourniquet, she regained consciousness and was taken to the hospital, police said.

The babies range in age from 3 days to 1 month, NY police Assistant Chief Juanita Holmes told reporters Friday.

The woman is also accused of stabbing one female co-worker eight times, police told WPIX. The man, who was stabbed in the leg, is believed to be the father of one of the children at the center, but it wasn't clear if any of the wounded infants belonged to him.

NBC New York reports that police say a butcher knife and meat cleaver - were recovered at the scene. "At one point, we thought she might have been likely (to die), but, thank God, she was upgraded".
