Police in the US Virgin Islands say they have caught a woman driving with her newborn baby zipped up in her handbag.
A police statement says an officer pulled over a woman driving a pick-up during a routine traffic stop on Tuesday. While asking for the woman’s licence, the officer heard a baby crying but could not see a baby seat in the vehicle.
The motorist then allegedly unzipped her handbag which was on the seat next to her and revealed a tiny newborn.
Police say the woman told them that the baby girl was born at home a week ago and had no prenatal care. She was apparently driving the baby to a doctor.
Authorities rushed the newborn to hospital. The mother may face criminal charges. Her name and age were not disclosed.
