A migrant woman was arrested on Saturday after she was accused of dumping her newborn baby in a hospital trash can.
Lucia Garcia, 21, was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment, according to police.
The New York Post reported that Garcia is originally from Mexico, but migrated to the United States roughly 10 months ago, and is seeking asylum. She currently lives in Staten Island with her father. Her mother still lives in Mexico.
Around 1 p.m. on Saturday, an off-duty New York Police Department officer working a side job at the Staten Island University Hospital spotted Garcia – who was soaked in blood. The NYPD officer notified his department about the blood-soaked woman.
Police officers and a hospital custodian reportedly heard the cries from a baby. They found a newborn baby in a hospital trash can, police say. (Read more from “Illegal Alien Arrested for Allegedly Dumping Newborn Baby in Hospital Trash Can” HERE)
