Mary Grace Trinidad who is a ‘local transient’ according to authorities has been charged with attempted murder and child endangerment after she gave birth and left the baby at the bathroom stall of a subway station.
The homeless woman gave birth at the West Covina subway chain in California was found when police officers followed her blood from the train station to a local Pep Boys car shop.
The baby was found at 8.30am by an employee and was immediately conveyed to the intensive care unit at Queen of the Valley Medical Centre.
The scene was described as bloody by Corporal Rudy Lopez, who also noted ”it was not clear if Trinidad gave birth directly into the toilet”.

According to police, Trinidad was wanted for a previous narcotics charge. The baby who was in critical condition has not been described as premature or not.
