Mother Of Newborn Baby Thrown From High-Rise Window Gets Probation
The baby was found on the ground outside of 850 West Eastwood with severe injuries. She passed away at Weiss Hospital, just a block away.
Ms. Uddin pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter of a family member. All other charges against her were dropped. You can read more about this development at CWB Chicago and in the Tribune.
We can't stress enough that Illinois has a Safe Haven Law, where newborns up to 30 days old can be turned in to hospitals, police stations, or fire stations, no questions asked. As long as the baby is uninjured, the parents can walk away, knowing their baby will be in safe hands.
