NYPD Finds Migrant’s Newborn Dumped in Trash Can
Lucia Garcia, 21, of the New Dorp area of Staten Island, and a migrant from Mexico, was arrested Saturday after she was found in the lobby of a Staten Island University hospital covered in blood with the newborn baby boy she had just delivered left behind in a bathroom trash can.
NYPD responded to Staten Island University Hospital around 1 a.m. after an NYPD officer working an off-duty job there spotted the blood-soaked Lucia Garcia, 21, originally from Mexico and now in the U.S. claiming asylum.

The officers and a hospital cleaning crew member then heard a baby’s cries and found the infant, who was taken to Manhattan NYU Langone Hospital in stable condition.
The woman’s father, Ambrosio Garcia, 41, said he had brought her to the hospital Friday night because she wasn’t feeling well but that she insisted she wasn’t pregnant and had been hiding her condition from him.
“Then the police went into the bathroom, and another man cleaned it. There was a baby boy in there that they found in the trash can.”
When Garcia came out of the bathroom, the police officer thought she needed medical attention because of the blood on her clothes and notified hospital staffers, who began examining her, a police source said.
“They thought she was hemorrhaging,” the source said.
Garcia said police took his daughter away after the baby was found — and he hadn’t talked to her since. “She’s there all alone,” the dad said.

Garcia said he was relieved when hospital workers told him his new grandson was doing well, he said. “Somebody came and told me that the baby was living last night, and he was well,” Garcia said.
