Both the child and mother are currently in the hospital; the baby's health is deemed to be good. The prosecutor's office is awaiting medical data regarding the child's health, as this will determine further actions. The investigation, overseen by the Krotoszyn police and prosecutor's office, is centered on the potential endangerment of the child's health and life.

Past and Future

In the past, the 19-year-old woman had been stripped of parental rights to her first child, which was entrusted to the grandmother. The young woman had reportedly given birth to the child in a forest clearing and had sought help at the hospital for her baby. A driver who had stopped upon seeing the young woman with the baby had assisted her. The District Prosecutor's Office has initiated a procedure to establish a custodian or legal guardians who will represent the interests of the newborn girl.
