Police in the Argentinian Provence of Buenos Aires have launched an investigation after a woman allegedly threw her newborn baby out of a flat window just minutes after giving birth to her.
According to El Dia the 18 year old mother who is currently facing homicide charges after the baby girl died as a result of her injuries she sustained in the incident which occurred at a flat in the town of Boulogne in the eastern Argentine province.
Local media say the woman who was apparently unaware she was pregnant committed the horrifying act after she gave birth to the girl in the bathroom of her flat.
It is believed the woman at the centre of the investigation thought her recent weight gain was due to a problem with her thyroid.
Reports say the baby girl who later died in hospital was found with its umbilical cord still attached on a courtyard by a concerned neighbour who heard her cries.
The newborn and her mother were taken to Maternal and Child Hospital of San Isidro for treatment, however a short time later the baby girl died from severe trauma.
Police say they are still waiting to question the mother who is still receiving treatment in hospital, although they have said she could be charged with homicide given the nature of baby’s sudden death.
