19-year-old Alyna Gutierrez went to an ER in Lancaster, California. She claimed that she had just had a miscarriage and that she had flushed the remains down the toilet.
One of the doctors determined that by miscarriage she must have meant given birth. The doctor determined she was far too along to have miscarried.
While she was at the hospital Gutierrez’s mother found the baby in Gutierrez’s room wrapped in towels and stuffed in a cabinet. Luckily the baby has survived.
Gutierrez herself is being held on $1M bond.
This is another case where someone thinks that they’re smarter than a medical professional who went to school for 8 years to learn their craft. Not to mention the years they’ve probably put in practicing medicine. I don’t understand how people think that some lamebrain story they concoct will actually fool a doctor. Then again I would never dream of trying to kill a baby.
Thanks to Bridget for the tip.
