Hospital Visitor Handed Plastic Bag Containing Bloody Newborn by Mystery Woman

A man visiting hospital was left stunned when a woman pulled up at the entrance in her car, called him over and handed him a bin bag with a blood-soaked newborn baby before speeding off.

It happened at Maryview Hospital, Portsmouth, Virginia, U.S. and Justin Goldfarb says he's had nightmares ever since.

He said: 'I dreamed about it a couple nights in a row and I hope I don't dream about it tonight. I'm going to remember that when I'm old and in a wheelchair.'

Goldfarb alerted a nurse about the bag, not knowing what was inside.

'And when she picked up the bag, you could see the baby's face in the bottom of the bag bleeding,' Goldfarb said.

Mr Goldfarb said he was outside, walking in to visit his girlfriend when he saw a woman get out of her car, and place a bag near the hospital's entrance and shouted at Goldfarb 'Hey you, can you come here'.

He said: 'I didn't think she was talking to me, so I walked over there and she was like, "You need to take that bag inside".'

'She was nervous, she was scratching her arms and forearms, I guess she was kind of nervous.'

The woman then drove off, but when hospital staff picked up the bag, they found to their horror a blood-covered newborn baby inside.

'It was dripping out the bottom of the bag, I don't think it was gushing,' Goldfarb told his local TV station.

The newborn was found cold to the touch, but is now healthy and is being taken care of by the Maryview staff.

'I'm not sure why people would do that when she could just take it in to the hospital instead of just dropping it off at the front door and expecting somebody else to take it in,' Goldfarb said.
