(Fox News) - Two women were arrested in South Carolina after a newborn baby fell out of a hole in a trashbag at a Mexican restaurant and later died, authorities said.
Estela Ruiz-Gomez, 19, gave birth in the bathroom of La Parrilla restaurant on July 12, and the baby's grandmother, Lorenza Gomez Rodriguez, 41, knew about it, officials from the Greenville Police Department said.
An employee taking the trash out later that day noticed the bag was heavier than usual and dragged it across the parking lot.
Authorities responded to an emergency call from the restaurant reporting that a newborn was in cardiac arrest.
