A 29 year old Thai woman has been arrested after she went with her son on a motorcycle to some bins and left her newborn baby boy in a bag.
She said that she already had four children and couldn’t afford another. This child was her fifth.
Pho Kaew, Nakorn Pathom police were called after the baby was found in between two bins in the Sampran area.
The boy was taken to Sampran Hospital.
Study of CCTV soon led to the mother’s house in Samut Sakhon.
She admitted that the baby had been born in her toilet earlier on Wednesday. She had cut the umbilical cord herself and then gone with her grown son to leave the baby in Sampran.
She said that she had no money for food and milk. She already had four children and a fifth was just too much. She hoped someone would find him and take care of him.
She said her husband was working in another province as a driver and didn’t know what she did. He earns 10,000 baht a month but in these desperate economic times that is not enough to raise a big family.
She said she regrets what she did now and did it in a confused state.
She has been charged with abandoning a child under 9 years of age.
She was taken to hospital suffering from exhaustion.
