GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A quick-thinking cleaning crew is credited for saving the life of a newborn boy left abandoned and choking in the cold water of a South Carolina sports arena toilet.
And a 24-year-old married mother of a 4-year-old faces charges of giving birth in the toilet to the 6-pound boy and leaving it to die.
Greenville Police Chief Terri Wilfong says that by calling for help, the crew got information to help get the baby warm and keep it breathing. Authorities have declined to immediately identify the workers.
The infant was hospitalized and in good condition, Wilfong told reporters at police headquarters Tuesday. The state Department of Social Services is in charge of the baby.
