An illegal alien was recently arrested after she gave birth in a Greenville, South Carolina restaurant where she works.
Estela Ruiz-Gomez, 18, and her mother, Lorenza Gomez Rodriguez, 39, tried to dispose of the baby by dumping it in a garbage can.
Ruiz-Gomez’s coworkers learned of the terrible deed as they were taking out the trash. Just before they were about to throw the bag out, the bag ripped and the baby fell out.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The baby’s father — who was reportedly at the restaurant — then retrieved his newborn, brought him inside and called for help.
Though the baby still had a heartbeat at the time EMS workers arrived, the newborn was pronounced dead shortly after at a nearby hospital.
Fast forward to Tuesday, when The Greenville News announced that both Ruiz-Gomez and her mother had been charged and arrested — her with “homicide by child abuse,” and her mother with “homicide by child abuse” and “aiding and abetting.”
According to the medical examiner, “the baby’s death would be ruled a homicide because he would have likely survived had he not been placed in the trash.”
This is beyond sad and we must pray for that innocent little boy that never got to live his life.
