New-Born Found In Wal-Mart Restroom!

Fri May 25, 2007 12:49 pm

I heard this on the news this morning.

A customer entered a restroom of a Wal-mart in Prince Albert, Sask, to find a newborn baby on the floor. The infant had appeared to have been born and abandoned within the last few minutes, and it's airway had not even been cleared.

That is horrible. What an odd thing to see as you go to take a tinkle!

There is a case somewhat similar to this here in Australia making the news at the moment.

It would be quite a horrible thing to be a 'Wal-Mart Baby'.

Why is it that this headline does NOT have any shock value?

It's pretty sad that something like this can happen in my country. Then again Prince Albert SK is not exactly A+ territory. The mother will obviously be caught on CCTV, dunno what the hell she was thinking. Very sad stuff.

There was a movie several years ago of a fictional story of an late stage pregnant unwed young adult woman who after being abandoned by family, 'moved' into a Wal-mart and the baby was born there too. Weird, life imitating art.
I would suspect the mother is under 18 and had serious problems at home about her pregnancy and couldn't or wouldn't have an abortion. Apparently security cameras recordings at the store's entrances/exits (apparently not in the bathroom thank you), will hopefully determine the mother.
Let us hope the the child will be ok and that the mother gets the physical and psychological help she needs. Of course, let us hope too they can find the father too and hook him with some of the child rearing costs.

So sad. I feel for the baby knowing that he may get to know his mother but will be in better hands.
