A teenage mother allegedly threw her baby boy out a second story bathroom window after she gave birth in her bathtub, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Eva Flores, 18, of East Boston, is charged with reckless endangerment of a child and assault and battery on a child causing injury.

The baby fell 17 feet into an alley off Saratoga Street after Flores allegedly tossed him away on September 20.

Flores, a Salvadoran immigrant, has only been in the country for a few months and may be in the country illegally.

Her baby survived but was suffering from abrasions and hypothermia when he was first hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital. The boy also suffered skull fractures, bleeding in the brain, and has a seizure disorder.

Flores allegedly confessed the deed to Boston Police. Evidence, including part of the umbilical cord, were found in the tub’s drain.

A neighbor heard the baby crying and found him lying face down in the alley.

The state Department of Children and Families took custody of the child.

Flores was held on just $1,500 bail. She returns to court November 1.

    What a digusting example of a human! Perhaps we should go back to the biblical directives…an eye for an eye. Maybe she should be thrown out of window, then spend the rest ot her miserable life in prison, if she survives. This is one of the many examples of the balkanization of this country. Diversity is suicide.

    $1500.00 bail for attempted murder of a new born child? Life is cheap these days I guess or maybe it’s different if you are an American citizen, then bail would probably be $150,000 for the same offense.

    What a disgusting young woman! If she can do this to her own baby, think of what she
    can do to American citizens?
    And the government continues to allow these mud people in.

    The real problem is about to begin. First, the woman will be found guilty and have to serve time in prison at the taxpayers’ expense. Second, if the baby survives, it will cost taxpayers millions of dollars in medical expense, educational expense, and if the child has other emotional or physical problems for the rest of its life, the taxpayers pay for that as well. I blame the US Governement and employers for all the problems they are creating because of illegal immigration.
