No charge against Chinese mother of baby left to die in sewer

I wrote about this cute little baby the other day who was tragically left for dead in a sewer pipe in China after his mother gave birth to him. Thankfully he survived and is alive and well after he was removed and taken to the hospital. Sadly the mother won't be charged for what she did to him and will be given custody of the baby, along with the man claiming to be the father! She claims the baby accidentally fell into the toilet??!! No way! Then why didn't she get help when it happened?!

I can appreciate her coming forward to claim the baby after abandoning him for dead, but what she did was attempted murder and neglect and she should be charged accordingly. I can't believe they are going to give her and the supposed father custody!!?

China Infant In Sewer
In this still image made from video from May 25, 2013, a baby who was rescued after being trapped in a sewage pipe just below a squat toilet in a public building, lies on a bed at a hospital in Jinhua city, eastern China.

"BEIJING (AP) — Authorities have concluded that a newborn rescued from a sewer pipe in eastern China became trapped because of an accident. They say there will be no criminal charges against the mother — who did not initially come forward to claim the baby.

They also say the baby has been released from a hospital into the care of the mother and a man claiming to be his father.

An official at eastern China's Pujiang county's propaganda office said Thursday that police concluded the unwed woman did not initially step forward out of fright. The official did not give his name, as is common among Chinese bureaucrats.

The unnamed woman secretly delivered the child Saturday in a rental building's restroom. She later claimed the infant accidentally slipped into the squat toilet."
