Baby ‘neglected’ by mom

A two-month-old baby was neglected while the mother was apparently under the influence of alcohol.

This incident took place on 27 November at 00:20 in Kraanvoël Street, Amstelhof, in Paarl East when a baby was heard crying continuously. An eyewitness heard the baby’s crying and eventually called the police to investigate.

The police found the baby crying in the shack.

According to Captain Diana Linee, Police spokesperson of Paarl East, the police officers reported: “Upon arrival, the baby was wrapped in a blanket and lay on his stomach while a part of his mother lay over him. The baby cried constantly and was sweating.”

The mother, who was under the influence of alcohol, woke up ten minutes after the police arrived on the scene and berated them.

“She insisted she would breastfeed the baby, even though she was allegedly under the influence of alcohol,” said Linee. The police are investigating a case of ill-treatment of children against the mother.
