Baby Abandoned on Bike Path in CA

The L.A. Times reported that a baby was found along a bike path in Compton. The 33-year-old mother had been hiding her pregnancy from friends and family, and had the baby shortly before Thanksgiving Day. Porche Washington was released from the hospital a few days later, and came to the bike path the following morning. She placed the baby underneath broken pieces of concrete, and neighbors said they heard crying for a few hours until someone found where the baby was located. The infant was taken to the hospital but is in good condition. Washington was charged with attempted murder.
