Mom arrested after baby rescued from drains
MADRID — A 26-year-old woman has been arrested in the eastern Spanish city of Alicante on suspicion of attempting to murder her newborn baby who had to be rescued from inside a building's drains, the Interior Ministry said Sunday.
The ministry said the two-day old boy, who still had his umbilical cord attached and was found wrapped in plastic bags, could have been trapped for 40 hours at a point where the building's drains converged into a 1.2 square yard manhole in a courtyard.
A neighbor had alerted firefighters at 2 a.m. local time Sunday to what was originally thought to be a meowing cat trapped inside the drains, the ministry said in a statement.
The baby, who weighed 4.6 pounds, is said to be in a serious but not life-threatening condition in a hospital, having suffered a fracture to a bone in one arm. The baby had other injuries too, which have yet to be detailed............

I hope this child gets adopted, gets a new name, and the records are sealed in such a way that he or she never knows this happened to them.“Evil begins when you begin to treat people as things.” -- Terry Pratchett
