A woman was arrested after she dumped her baby in a field after giving birth.
For 9 months, the woman of Ilawa, Poland, hid her unwanted pregnancy from friends, family and colleagues.
30-year-old Jolanta Czarnecka, went into labor at work and gave birth in a field during lunch break before returning to work and leaving her newborn daughter alone in the field.
When she returned to work, her manager saw blood on her clothes and refused to accept her claim that she was fine. The manager took her to a hospital, where doctors discovered that she gave birth.
Czarnecka told the doctor that the baby fell into the toilet at work and was flushed down the toilet by accident.
However, after detectives found no evidence of a birth in the bathroom at work, Czarnecka admitted to giving birth in the field.
Investigators found the abandoned baby two days after her birth. She was severely dehydrated and covered with insects.
“It is a miracle that she survived in those conditions for so long, it’s just a miracle,” Dr. Barbara Chomik said.
Czarnecka was arrested and charged with attempted murder, and could face up to five years in prison.
