Baby dies in US cold snap

 
February 6th 2017
 

A baby died in January in freezing temperatures with his homeless mother at a bus stop in Portland.

The baby, found in early January, marks the fifth death on Portland's freezing streets this year. Four homeless people died of exposure in the first 10 days of 2017.

According to US-based Willamette Week (WW), which reported on the baby’s death, it was unclear whether he died of exposure hours after being born outdoors or was stillborn. However WW claims that it obtained a police report that suggested the baby was alive when the mother, who was barefooted and only partially-clothed, stopped a passing commuter. He called emergency services and baby was rushed to hospital but did not survive.
