Abandoned baby’s mother may face charges
The mother who threw her newborn baby out of the window last Wednesday dawn may face charges.
Police said the mother, a helper, could be charged with frustrated infanticide for throwing her baby out of the window after giving birth to her inside the toilet of the house she was working in.
Though the baby sustained scratches in her face and body after she was found “holding on” to the vines by a resident, doctors found her to be healthy. The mother was also brought to CCMC to be cared for after birth.
Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama visited the mother and child at the hospital after his regular press conference at the City Hall. Rama said he is willing to adopt the baby but the mother can still take the baby if she is still willing to have her.
The mother is married and a native of Bohol province. The baby’s fatheris married to another woman.
