Two illegal immigrants were arrested after police found a dead newborn in the trash of a South Carolina restaurant’s restroom, Breitbart reports.
Police in Greenville arrested 18-year-old Estela Ruiz-Gomez, who gave birth to the child before throwing the baby into the trash, causing its death.
The child’s grandmother, Lorena Gomez Rodriguez, was arrested for helping Ruiz-Gomez hide the murder.
Police say an employee was dragging the trash bag from the restroom across the pavement when the bag ripped and the body fell out.
The child’s father, who also works at the restaurant, recovered the child’s body and called 911.
The baby still had a heartbeat when first responders arrived but was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Ruiz-Gomez was ordered by Homeland Security to leave the country last year but never left.
