Baltimore County police say a woman who gave birth in the bathroom of her home put the newborn in a plastic bag and tossed the infant out a second-floor window. The baby girl survived.

A 21-year-old Reisterstown woman threw her newborn baby out of a window last week, a Baltimore County police spokesman said.

Rebecca Himes of the 100 block of Virginia Ave. gave birth to a baby in the bathroom of her home Thursday, placed the baby into a plastic bag and threw the bag out the window into some bushes, said Lt. Robert McCullough.

A family member heard a noise and found the baby outside, McCullough said. The girl’s mother and the other family member then called the police, he said.

When officers arrived at the house, McCullough said, they found blood all over the bathroom. Himes and her baby were taken to Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The baby remains at the hospital and is in good condition and in the custody of the Department of Social Services, McCullough said.

The mother was released, he said. Himes was not arrested and has not been charged in the incident, McCullough said.

The incident remains under investigation by the Police Department and the Department of Social Services, he said, but prosecutors will decide if Himes will be charged.
