Mother ‘Caught On Hospital Camera Suffocating Newborn Son’

A mother who claimed her newborn son repeatedly stopped breathing was caught on a hidden camera in hospital allegedly trying to suffocate her baby.

Katie Lewis had rushed her five-month-old son to hospital telling doctors the child would stop breathing, turn blue and then regain consciousness.

Staff at the Children’s Hospital in St Paul, Minnesota, arranged for the child to be placed under observation for 24 hours in a room fitted with a video and audio monitoring system.

They also performed a series of tests but could find no evidence to support 24-year-old Lewis’s claims about her baby.
