Local News in Brief : Abandoned Baby’s Condition Improves

The condition of a newborn girl who survived four nights without food or water after her 16-year-old mother allegedly left her in a garbage can was upgraded Wednesday from serious to satisfactory.

The infant was admitted to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for hypothermia and dehydration Monday after she was found in Carson by a 17-year-old relative who said the baby was covered with trash.

The mother, whose name was withheld because of her age, was held on suspicion of attempted murder and faces arraignment today.
