She was caught on CCTV.  “Nok” told investigators after she was detained that no one knew that she was pregnant and she went to the clinic for a blood test but unexpectedly gave birth in the toilets.  She said she cut the umbilical cord with a knife she had with her then cradled the baby that she then dropped.  She stuffed the remains of the cord and placenta down the toilet and believing the baby to be dead went in search of a bin bag.  She then disposed of her child.  

An autopsy found that the baby had died of lack of oxygen – perhaps from being enclosed in the tied up plastic bin bag. A relative said that Nok lived with them while her parents were working in Bangkok. They had no idea she was pregnant.  The father was a 17 year old boy and Nok initially planned to have the baby born elsewhere.  She has been charged with murder and detained.
