A MONSTER mum threw her newborn girl out of a maternity hospital window when she was told the child was likely to be disabled.
The woman, 23, dropped a second baby girl out of the window at the medical facility in Namangan, Uzbekistan, in a bid to “cover the crime”, police said.
Her two previous babies had died of natural causes after being born with severe impairments.
It took an hour for sleeping night duty staff to realise the babies were missing and had plunged 16ft.
When they were finally found, the girls were alive but severely injured from the fall and both died soon afterwards in intensive care.
The woman – named only D.Kh – faces 15 to 25 years in jail under Uzbekistan’s laws.
A police source said the woman had given birth twice before to babies who were disabled and both had died from natural causes.
“This time she was told by maternity hospital doctors that her newborn daughter was unlikely to be healthy,” said the source.
“It made her think that no-one would ever love or need this baby and pushed her to commit this awful crime.”
The mother is believed to have been told the child had bow legs, a condition which is treatable and can be cured.
Doctors have not given more details of the baby’s condition.
The second tragic mother whose healthy baby was killed was named M.T, aged 22.
A murder case has been opened against the alleged killer and separate case for medical negligence against hospital staff who were “asleep” at the time.
The medical staff face up to eight years in jail if convicted.
Women of Uzbekistan committee said that it got in touch with the family of the 23-year-old who killed the babies.
“We don’t approve of what she did, but we would like to help her and her family by easing their grave psychological trauma,” said a statement.
