The parents of a newborn baby were arrested Friday over the death of the infant who died after she was left in the basket of a bicycle in Tokyo's Iitabashi Ward in February.
According to police, the two young parents, an 18-year-old woman and 19-year-old man, left the baby girl, wrapped in two towels, in the basket of a bicycle outside a house. It was raining at the time of the incident. After the baby was found, she was rushed to the hospital, but died soon after.
According to police, the couple have admitted to the charges. After the woman gave birth to the baby in a nearby hotel, the couple decided they couldn't take care of the infant.© News reports
