New Mexico teen mom tossed newborn into dumpster in New Mexico

Shocking surveillance video captured a teenager tossing her newborn into a dumpster in New Mexico – only for hours later, the child to be found alive by three people sifting through the trash, according to a report.

Alexis Avila, 18, was seen arriving at the dumpster on North Thorp Street in Hobbs about 2 p.m. Friday, pulling a black trash bag out of the car and tossing it into the container, KOB reported.

Six hours later, three people combing through the dumpster were seen removing the bag, looking inside and finding the baby.

The woman quickly wrapped up the newborn and took the baby to a truck as a man apparently calls authorities, the outlet reported.

“Upon arrival officers rendered aid to the newborn child and the baby was transported to a local hospital by Hobbs EMS. The child was subsequently transported to a Lubbock Hospital for further pediatric treatment,” police said in a statement.

Joe Imbriale, owner of the Rig Outfitters and Home Store, said that police asked to view his security camera footage on Friday night.

“Something wasn’t right. I saw the officers’ faces and they did not look right. They really didn’t,” Imbriale told KOB.

“I said, ‘What is it we are looking for?’ and she goes, ‘We’re looking for somebody who dumped a black garbage bag in your dumpster.’ I turned around, I said, ‘Please don’t tell me it was a baby,’” Imbriale said.

The child was found six hours later but a man and a woman who immediately alerted authorities.
