A newborn baby abandoned in toilet bowl
A newborn baby was found alive over the weekend in a toilet at a public restroom in a Mexico City Metro station.
Police found the baby girl in a restroom at the Constitucion de 1917 station on Sunday morning.
A cleaning woman told officer Ulises Gomez that she heard a baby crying in the restroom and found the child in the toilet with her umbilical cord still attached.
The baby was born about 20 minutes before she was found and would have drowned in the toilet bowl if she had not been discovered in time, doctors said.
Investigators are examining video from security cameras at the Metro station and hope to find the woman who abandoned the baby.
The newborn is in good condition, but her mother faces child abandonment charges.
