(CNN) – A 44-year-old woman faces charges of child abuse after she gave birth in a portable toilet and deliberately dropped the newborn into the waste tank, according to police in Cambridge, Maryland.
After exiting the portable toilet in Long Wharf Park, Candy Vigneri got a cigarette from a construction worker and sat at a picnic table, police Lt. Wayne Bromwell said.
As she sat, a male passer-by approached the toilet but Vigneri warned him, “Don’t go in there, I just had a baby there,” police said.
The man immediately called 911. Vigneri returned to the toilet and retrieved the newborn from the foul liquid at the base of the tank.
The baby was unresponsive and covered with a blue antibacterial chemical agent when emergency responders reached the scene, police said.
Vigneri told officers that she didn’t know she was pregnant.
This is Sad This the second time i hear that somebody did not know they were pregnant and droped the baby in the toilet.
I pray for speedy recovery for the child and a happy a healthy future
