A 2-year-old girl was found dead on a Greyhound bus Tuesday in Atlanta when her mother emerged from the vehicle sobbing, screaming, and holding her lifeless daughter in her arms.

It's not yet clear why the girl died.

The mother, 19-year-old Alexis Washington, had just stepped off the bus — which departed Greenville, South Carolina, for New Orleans, but made a scheduled stop in Atlanta — when witnesses Jessica Green and Kia Hightower saw her running frantically around on Peters Street bridge with her child clutched to her chest, according to WXIA. 

She reportedly screamed that the toddler's body was "cold" and she was no longer breathing. The bystanders immediately called 911.

The girl was taken to the Hugh Spalding Hospital in Atlanta where she was pronounced dead upon arrival.

The Greyhound bus made the scheduled stop at Atlanta around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, according to WXIA. No cause of death has been successfully determined as of yet, although the Atlanta police do not currently consider Washington as a suspect, according to Atlanta Police Captain Terrell Griffin. A medical examiner is expected to determine the official cause of death, and no further information is readily available.

Greyhound Lines, Inc. was founded in 1914 and is currently the largest provider of intercity bus transportation with over 3,800 destinations across North America, according to its website. Sporting one of the most recognized brand symbols in the world of the running Greyhound dog, the company claims to provide “safe, enjoyable, and affordable travel to nearly 18 million passengers each year in the United States and Canada.” Greyhound also says its mission is to “provide solutions in an increasingly congested world, keeping people moving and communities prospering,” and the company employs 120,000 men and women while transporting more than 2.5 billion passengers each year.
