Moment woman threw her newborn baby daughter into rubbish bin caught on CCTV
This is the moment a Russian woman threw her one-day-old baby daughter into a rubbish bin.
The woman, who is yet to be identified, was filmed on CCTV chucking the plastic bag holding the newborn baby into a bin.
Fortunately, when police found the newborn in Moscow earlier this month, she was still alive.
In the CCTV footage, the woman is seen walking to the bin and placing a bag inside before hurrying away and looking around so to check if she is being watched.
It is unclear who called the police, but officers arrived on the scene soon afterwards and found the baby girl wrapped in a jacket inside a plastic bag.
The baby, still alive, was sent to a medical centre to be checked by doctors and currently remains in their care in a stable condition, according to reports.
The police tracked down the suspected mother and placed her under arrest for the attempted murder of a newborn child.
Yulia Ivanova, assistant head of the Moscow State Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, confirmed that the suspect has been stripped of any parental rights and remains in custody as the investigation continues.
