Mother Ditches Her Three Month Old Baby After Drugs Made Her Paranoid
A Mother in Washington state was arrested last night for leaving her 3-month-old baby alone in a front yard — after the drugs she was on “made her paranoid” according to The New York Post.
The woman, who has not been named, abandoned the boy sometime before 1:30 a.m., when authorities found him lying in the grass outside a random person’s home, according to police.
The Mother told investigators that she was on drugs at a nearby residence and scared for her life when she made the decision to leave her baby.
”She said she grabbed her baby and ran from the residence because she thought she was being chased”.
Lakewood Police officials said in a press release: ”She admitted to leaving the baby in a front yard and hoping someone would find him.”
A woman who was walking in the area spotted him wriggling on the ground and initially thought he was an animal in distress.
After further glance, though, she noticed he was an infant and quickly called police.
The boy was rushed to a hospital and eventually placed in the care of Child Protective Services.
The woman had been found running in the area a few hours after her baby was discovered, and taken to the hospital for treatment.
