Boston, MA—A teenage mother is facing assault, battery and reckless child endangerment charges for allegedly throwing her newborn baby out of a second-floor window. The mother is now under psychiatric care, as reported by MSNBC.
Eva Flores, 18, reportedly gave birth in a bathtub on September 20, and then tossed the newborn baby out the window into an alley filled with trash. A neighbor heard the baby’s cries and called police, who found the baby. Officials said the infant plummeted about 17 feet into the narrow alley that separates two homes in an East Boston neighborhood.
The infant was rushed to the hospital for treatment of hypothermia, abrasions, hemorrhaging and seizures.
Flores pleaded not guilty in an East Boston District Court for charged of assault and battery on a child under 14, and reckless endangerment of a child, a prosecutor reported on Tuesday, October 12, 2010. Flores’ bail was set at $1,500.
Flores reportedly visited her son in the hospital and named him Angel. The infant has since been placed in the custody of the state Department of Families and Children.
