DETROIT – A Highland, Michigan woman has been charged with assault and abandonment of her newborn infant after the child was mysteriously dropped off at Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit last week. Police identified the parents of the newborn child on Sunday. The newborn baby was reportedly cold to the touch and lost a large amount of blood due to the umbilical cord not being clamped off, officials said. The baby reportedly required a blood transfusion at the hospital. The man who dropped off the baby was reportedly questioned by police and released pending further investigation.
