Mother who dumped baby in drain remains behind bars

THE WOMAN who dumped her newborn baby in a storm water drain will remain behind bars for at least another two weeks.

The public was shocked at the heart wrenching moment a newborn baby boy was found crying after being dumped in a water drain at Quakers Hill 5 days prior.

The child was found malnourished and extremely dehydrated, but has since improved since being taken to hospital.


The matter was mentioned in court today, but the 30-year-old mother was not required to appear.

The case will return to court on December 12.
