Shocking footage shows teen mom tossing newborn into dumpster in New Mexico

Shocking surveillance video captured a teenager tossing her newborn into a dumpster in New Mexico — only for the child to be found alive hours later by three people sifting through the trash, according to a report.

Alexis Avila, 18, was seen arriving at the dumpster on North Thorp Street in Hobbs about 2 p.m. Friday, pulling a black trash bag out of the car and tossing it into the container, KOB reported.

Six hours later, three people combing through the dumpster were seen removing the bag, looking inside and finding the baby.

The woman quickly wraps up the newborn and takes the baby to a truck as a man apparently calls authorities, the outlet reported.

“Upon arrival officers rendered aid to the newborn child and the baby was transported to a local hospital by Hobbs EMS. The child was subsequently transported to a Lubbock Hospital for further pediatric treatment,” police said in a statement.

Police said they were able to retrieve surveillance footage of the incident and later located Avila’s vehicle.

She confessed to giving birth to the baby and throwing the newborn into the dumpster, cops said.

Avila has been charged with attempted murder and was expected to be arraigned Monday in Lea County District Court.

Joe Imbriale, owner of the Rig Outfitters and Home Store, said police asked to view his security camera footage on Friday night.

“Something wasn’t right. I saw the officers’ faces and they did not look right. They really didn’t,” Imbriale told KOB.

“I said, ‘What is it we are looking for?’ and she goes, ‘We’re looking for somebody who dumped a black garbage bag in your dumpster.’ I turned around, I said, ‘Please don’t tell me it was a baby,’” Imbriale said.

The child was found six hours later but a man and a woman who immediately alerted authorities.

“I was in shock just to see this,” he added. “I can’t sleep at night just knowing that this baby was just tossed in a dumpster like that. I’m sorry but who does that? That is evil. I don’t have words for it.”
