Baby Found Trash Can In Texas Hospital Is Brain Dead

(February 15, 2008)--A newborn allegedly delivered in a Houston emergency room bathroom and concealed in a hospital trash can is reportedly now brain dead, according to the attorney for the infant's 29-year-old mother.

Genny Granados remains jailed Friday on a charge of injury to a child.

Her attorney, Elihu Dodier says Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital officials indicated the baby boy has no brain activity.

The child has been on life support since a custodian discovered the child Saturday night at Southwest Memorial Hermann Hospital.

The child had no pulse but was revived by doctors.

A judge raised bail for Granados from $30,000 to $50,000 Thursday.

The legal resident from El Salvador has lived with the father of her two-year-old son for the past five years.

The man, Alfredo Navarro, said he didn't know Granados was pregnant and doesn't think he is the father of the newborn.
