Why are they relieved they are reunited again?!

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AFP) – A woman who gave birth in mid-air left the baby behind when she disembarked in Auckland, Television New Zealand reported Thursday.
Police and Pacific Blue -- the airline which operated the flight from the Samoan capital Apia -- were saying little about their investigation Thursday, but mother and child were said to be recovering in hospital.Television New Zealand reported that the Samoan woman gave birth in one of the aircraft's toilets during the flight to Auckland early Thursday. The infant was found by an airline worker in the toilet rubbish bin more than an hour after the plane landed. There was no suggestion any of the 150 passengers or crew were aware that the woman, reportedly aged 30, had borne a child in mid-air. But the television station said authorities discovered something was wrong after she approached them saying she had misplaced her passport.

  • Yea I didnt get that either. I would think the baby should be in some sort of protective custody since she tried to kill it once already.

  • I just Googled the Wellington, New Zealand Police station and sent them an email asking them to charge the woman with attempted murder and not to let her have the child back.

    Why doesn't everyone else do the same and take this opportunity to send the message to the world (if she does get charged) that babies are not disposable??

  • Women like that should be put in jail forever! Now a days there are so many options for unwanted babies that she has no excuse.
