A mother too young to take care of her baby
The mother and baby have received the necessary care and are in hospital for check-ups. According to a resident, the desperate act of this mother could be due to her too young age. “The mother must have been too young to look after her baby,” he told Grimsby Live. “The mother must have been too young to understand or didn’t want anyone to know she was pregnant,” he added, before concluding, “We hope she will receive the care she needs to her and her baby. Police did not add more information other than that stated by Grimsby Live.
