Baby Who Was Cut From His Mother’s Womb Opens His Eyes
The family of the baby boy who was ripped from his mother’s womb reveal that he has opened his eyes for the first time after being in critical condition.
Marlen Ochoa-Lopez’s family is desperately holding on to hope for the baby boy to survive despite his ordeal.
46-year-old Clarissa Figueroa and her daughter, Desiree, have been charged with murder in connection with Marlen’s death. As we reported, Clarisa then went to the hospital with the baby boy claiming that he was hers. Police are concerned about the hospital’s practice as they did not immediately notify the authorities.
“I’m just thinking in my own mind, if I see somebody coming in with a baby, with an umbilical and placenta, why does the mother look like she is good health, that has no blood, normal clothes. That doesn’t make logical sense to me,” said family lawyer Frank Avila.
ABC 7 reports that DCFS was notified two weeks after Marlen was murdered.
The hospital released a statement saying, “Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Ochoa-Lopez family. Our clinical team is committed to meeting regularly with patients and families to ensure there is open dialogue about treatment paths. Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we are unable to comment on the specific content covered during our time together.”
Marlen’s funeral is scheduled for Saturday.
