September 5, 2013 Jersey City New Jersey (CBS2) A 39-year-old woman is accused of abandoning her premature newborn baby in Jersey City.
Police believe Rosibel Lanza gave birth to the baby boy about 11 or 12 weeks early in her home on Saturday, prosecutors said.
She then allegedly put the newborn in a plastic shopping bag with paper towels and toilet paper, investigators said.
The bag was tied and left behind an apartment building on Kensington Avenue, prosecutors said.
The baby was found alive by children playing in the area.
The hospital reports the infant weighed just less than three pounds when he was found, but he is now doing well, gaining weight and breathing on his own, CBS 2 reported.
Lanza was arrested late Wednesday night and charged with second-degree endangering the welfare of a child and child abuse.
She appeared in court via a closed circuit television on Thursday and offered only her name as her mother and brother wept.
Lanza’s family told CBS 2′s Christine Sloan that they did not even know she was pregnant.
“Nobody noticed. Not even me,” Lanza’s brother Melvin said.
The family did not think that the factory worker was surprised by her pregnancy.
The baby was found by a 12-year-old boy who was playing with his friends in a desolate area near Lanza’s building.
“I heard the baby crying and me and my friends thought the baby was an animal until I opened the bag and saw the arm of the baby and then told the super and we opened the rest of it,” Jaiden Washington said.
