Chiang Mai massage woman had baby in the police station toilets - left the child in the toilet bowl
Thai Rath reported that police in Chiang Mai have arrested a 43 year old woman who sneaked into the Muang District police station and had a baby in the toilets.
After giving birth at the weekend the heartless mother left her child in the toilet bowl.
But the child survived as is now improving in hospital.
Busaba Somfu, 43, who worked as a massage woman at a nearby shop has been arrested.
She told police that she experienced stomach pains while servicing a client. She sneaked into the toilet and was shocked that she gave birth.
She was caught on CCTV entering the toilet at 10.05 pm and leaving at 10.21 pm.
She said that she was not ready to have a child and her husband refused to accept any responsibility so she left her child in the toilet.
Pol Col Piyaphan Patrapong, a deputy commander of the provincial Chiang Mai police, said she had been charged under a law related to abandoning a child.
Maharat Nakorn Hospital said the child was improving and would be handed over to the care of a children's home as no one else had come in to claim the child.
