Mother dumps baby in gutter
A young woman has allegedly dumped her day-old
baby into a gutter at Krofrom, a suburb of Kumasi,
the Ashanti Regional capital.

The naked toddler was found dead and lying in the
dirty and stinking gutter by some residents in the
area Friday morning.

The mother (name withheld), who is believed to be
19 years old, is currently at the hospital
receiving treatment for excessive bleeding.

She is reported to have dumped the baby in the big
gutter a few minutes after she had safely
delivered the baby at home Friday dawn.

Brother Atta, a unit committee member in the area,
said the young mother collapsed through bleeding
after she had purportedly dumped the toddler into
the gutter.

Borother Atta said the suspect secretly dumped the
kid into the gutter under the cover of darkness
and so nobody spotted her.

The chilly weather condition in that early morning
perhaps, contributed to the passing to eternity of
the baby, the unit committee member, noted.

Patrick Kwame Frimpong, Krofrom East assemblyman,
said the matter had been reported to the police
who are investigating it.

He said the young mother is a junior high school
(JHS) student who failed to show who had put her
in the family way.

According to him, the young woman gave birth to a
male at home Friday dawn when inhabitants of the
house were asleep.

Mr Kwame Frimpong said some residents in the area
spotted the lifeless baby in the gutter so they
became suspicious that the teenager was the
culprit.

Some of the people rushed to the young woman’s
house but before they could confront her, she had
collapsed due to excessive bleeding after the
delivery.
