Mother Hides Newborn in Car Trunk for 2 Years


A mother in France kept her newborn baby in the trunk of a car for two years to hide her pregnancy from her family. She is now facing trial and is accused of repeated violence against a minor causing permanent disability.

Rosa Maria Da Cruz, 50, gave birth to a girl named Serena who is believed to be around two years old now.  The toddler was discovered by a garage mechanic inside a car in Terrasson-Lavilledieu in southwestern France. Cruz had allegedly asked the mechanics not to open the trunk because it was full and she did not want to empty it. However, mechanics got suspicious when they heard scratching sounds coming from inside. They found a malnourished girl lying naked inside the foul-smelling car.
