WHAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD KNOW

INFORMATION ALL PARENTS NEED TO KNOW

 

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis woman said she gave birth in a warehouse restroom and expected the newborn boy to die after she dumped him in a garbage can and returned to her work station, according to court documents.

A Marion County judge entered a preliminary not guilty plea Wednesday for 22-year-old Briana Holland on charges including attempted murder and child neglect.

Police said they arrested Holland after her co-workers at the warehouse on the west side of Indianapolis found the newborn Friday night. The baby's head was covered in a bag, part of a tampon applicator was inside his mouth and toilet paper was wrapped around his neck, court documents said

Holland told a detective she was scared and couldn't afford to care for her son, according to a police affidavit.

The affidavit said when the detective asked Holland what she thought would happen to the baby she replied: "I know what the results would probably be. It would probably die."

Defense attorney Chadwick Hill didn't immediately return a telephone message from The Associated Press seeking comment.

The baby, who is in the custody of child welfare officials, was purple, cold and gasping for air when the co-workers found in the trash can, court documents said. The workers and a nurse at the warehouse cared for the boy until medics arrived and took him to a hospital.

Holland's boyfriend told police that she had kept her pregnancy secret from her family and hadn't received any prenatal care. He said he found out about her giving birth on Twitter and intends to seek custody of the child, the affidavit said.

Indiana has a safe haven law that allows people to give up custody of infants less than 30 days old to a hospital emergency room, police or fire station. A fire station is located across the street from the warehouse where Holland worked.

Since the safe haven law was enacted in 2000, nearly 140 infants have been left with emergency services providers, according to the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
